Monthly Garden Club Meetings & Parlour Shows

September 9, 2019, 7 pm,

Mary Winspear Community Center in the Charlie White Auditorium

Connie Thompson has a long history of growing dahlias in the summer months, and making hand made, beaded, embellished Christmas Decorations that she sells at craft fairs pre-Christmas. Her  history with Dalia’s began about 25 years ago. Over the years she became a dahlia judge, growing and showing at dahlia shows during the summer months. Her and her husband, live on a small farm and in 2013 are growing over 600 dahlia plants. They sell dahlia tubers in the spring and attend the Qualicum Beach Farmers Market selling cut flowers and floral arrangements during late July, August and September as long as the weather holds! They also supply cut dahlias for summer weddings.

Connie will be speaking to us of the World of Dahlia growing and care.
