Learn everything there is to know about dahlias, those dazzling, late-summer bloomers that come in so many enticing, sizes, shapes, and hues. From sourcing the right tubers to mastering the science of their cultivation to using them in floral designs, join Mara Tyler from the Farm at Oxford as she takes you on a virtual tour of her dahlia fields, shares her growing tips and tricks, and then demonstrates their use in imaginative floral designs. You will receive a list of the materials to re-create the arrangements at home and three-month access to the video presentation.
After your virtual demonstration, you’ll want to roll up your sleeves and try your hand at creating a floral arrangement with dahlias! In our hands-on workshop, you will join Mara online as she guides you through creating your own arrangements in a small virtual group. You pick up your flowers at Longwood Gardens on Wednesday, September 30, where you will receive a bucket brimming with floral beauties straight from the Farm at Oxford. Take your flowers home, provide your own vessel, and make your own dahlia masterpiece. Select the hands-on session most convenient for you: October 1 at 2:00 to 3:30 pm or 4:30 to 6:00 pm.
Please note: Floral material pickup for virtual workshop will be September 30, 8:00–10:00 am or 4:00–6:00 pm. Directions provided after registration.
