Dahlia grower hosted September field trip

Posted on Thursday October 12, 2017

Our September 2017 field trip took us to see the 500 Dahlias of a real Dahlia lover, Ron Miner of Chagrin Falls. Ron is a Dahlia Society of Ohio judge and exhibitor, and a past-president of and currently a trustee of the American Dahlia Society. He spoke to our Club a few years ago and welcomed us to visit his three gardens with 100 different Dahlia cultivars. We learned about growing Dahlias, their watering/fertilizing needs, how to over-winter the tubers, and the virus research Ron is supporting in a project underway at Washington State University. We enjoyed seeing the wide variety of colors and shapes and sizes of this captivating flowering plant that is a member of the same family as the lowly dandelion!
