Over recent years the State Dahlia Show has grown and, again, it is expected that over 1000 blooms will be exhibited in a riot of colour and variety with dahlias from the tiny & petite to flowers the size of dinner-plates.
The show will be open from 12.30pm to 5.00pm on Saturday and 10.00am to 3.30pm on Sunday. Society members will be on hand to help visitors with their questions or simply guiding them in the ease and rewards of growing these long flowering plants that fill gardens and vases with colour through Summer and into Autumn.
For the keen gardener, there will be presentations on the many aspects of dahlia growing. Others may chose to settle for a cup of tea or coffee with scones, jam and cream after choosing a winner in the People's Choice section or watching the children enter in our new instant competition where every child is a winner.
There will be a sales area with potted Dahlias and other plants and cut flowers for sale along with our guest sellers, Country Dahlias, Serendipity Lavender Products, Cacti and Succulents and Bromeliads
Photographers are encouraged and both amateurs and professionals enjoy the many photo opportunities. There are many who come to the show to record their choice of blooms to grow next year.
Club secretaries, organize a day out for your members and come and see the colourful spectacular that dahlias provide.
