I think every farm and grower has a different means of storing dahlia tubers. The primary factors that need attention are temperature, humidity, and pest pressure. Read on for our method.
Got wind? We sure do. I find myself cringing a lot during the spring and fall when strong winds from the south blast through the farm. Last summer, we netted plants and put as many as we could under low tunnels to offer them some protection. We'll do the same this summer, but we're also installing a temporary windbreak fence to make things a little safer for the plants. Read on for our plan and shopping links. Thank you to Aztec Dahlias for this idea!
This month's giveaways are rose themed. Last month, you met Felicia Alvarez and Menagerie Farm and Flower. This month, she has two bareroot rose bushes to share with us! Also in the mix: artist, Abby Miller, jumped in to make two inspiring drawings of roses for even more lucky readers. Read on for more info. and links. Drawing: February 28th.
