Hello ADGS Members,
Are you growing dahlias but are unfamiliar with what the differences are between the varieties and how to tell a beautiful flower from a spectacular flower? If so, you might wish to register for this workshop.
The Judging Workshop is open to all members but tailored for those who have not previously taken a dahlia judging class.
You will be introduced to the Classification and Handbook of Dahlias put out by the American Dahlia Society and be taught about the various forms, colours and sizes of dahlias (including understanding the 4-digit class numbers).
Once you have taken this course, you will be offered the opportunity to have some hands-on experience by being paired with a senior judge at the Alberta Dahlia and Gladiolus Society Show on August 24th and 25th (Bower Mall).
If interested, please register by phoning or e-mailing Ken Jensen. His phone number is 403-782-5095 and his e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The workshop will be held at the Piper Creek Trial Garden on Sunday, August 10th from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. Piper Creek Trial Garden is on the property of Lorne and Marilyn McArthur (across from the Red Deer Waste Management Facility).
