Shepparton & District Dahlia Club Inc

 

The Shepparton Club meets the fourth Sunday of each month excluding July & August.
Meetings are rotated around member’s homes & gardens starting with a BBQ lunch at 12 noon.

 

History

26th November 2006 saw the clubs formation and has now grown to a membership of approx. 50 members. Our membership has a wide range of experienced growers & exhibitors who are only too willing to help with advise & growing tips.

 

Tubers

The Public Tuber Auction is conducted in October providing a forum to purchase top exhibition quality tubers.

 

Member Activities

Members go on bus trips to the Victorian State Show, Dahlia Gardens & many other places of interest.

 

In March the club stages their Annual Show at the Shepparton Market Place. The show is a chance for all members to show-case their blooms. The public venue is an ideal place to “PROMOTE THE DAHLIA”


The club have organised a collection of Dahlia Tubers for the residents of nearby Rochester who were severely affected by the floods in January 2011 that devastated their area. The donation of tubers will give them some colour in their gardens this coming season at the same time promoting the Dahlia.
