Our group holds regular meetings and activities in various locations in the ACT and in southern NSW. Many members were originally attracted to the dahlia blooms they saw at their local flower show or at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. The amazing range of colours, sizes and shapes of the dahlia blooms motivates people to want to grow them. And why not, they are really spectacular flowers. By joining the Dahlia Society, new members are able to obtain the really good stock and new releases, and also growing tips from the experts, first hand. Even if members are not interested in showing dahlias, everyone gets pleasure from just growing them in the home garden. At the conclusion of our meetings, we usually have a special topic to discuss, or a demonstration of aspects of dahlia growing. These are popular and make the meetings more interesting.
