Join ABG and gardener Amelia Walsh for a hands-on workshop all about dahlias. Learn about basic dahlia care, growing tips, and how to properly divide tubers in the fall. Workshops attendees will go through the process of dividing dahlia tubers and be able to take some home for their own garden. This workshop will be held indoors and outdoors, so please dress accordingly. This is a hands-on and experiential workshop, so please bring gardening gloves with you if you have them and be prepared to get some dirt on your hands! :)
Don't forget about the garlic workshop the same day at 2 pm! Sign up for the garlic workshop here: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/workshop-growing-garlic-in-alaska-tickets-12309557217.

The Alaska Botanical Garden is a public garden dedicated enhancing the beauty and value of plant material through education, preservation, recreation, and research
The Garden is located in Anchorage, Alaska, just South of Tudor Road at 4601 Campbell Airstrip Road, adjacent to Far North Bicentennial Park. Bordering the Garden to the East is the north fork of Campbell Creek. Chugach State Park is nearby.
About the Garden
The Garden is comprised of 110 acres of Boreal Forest, with nature trails connecting the Gardens and points of interest.
With over 1,100 species of hardy perennials, and 150 native plant species, the Alaska Botanical Garden is a great place to experience the abundance of the summer sub-arctic growing season and to learn about flora native to Southcentral Alaska.
From May through September you will find flowering plants and shrubs in two perennial gardens, a formal herb garden, an alpine rock garden, and a wildflower walk. A new "East" Garden hosts a Gold Medal Peony collection.
