What you'll learn in this floral design class:

Geared toward the dahlia enthusiast, Field & Florist will go over the basics of growing and designing with dahlias. We will also discuss maintenance techniques, cutting, as well as the digging and storage of tubers. 

Participants will receive their own clump of Field & Florist dahlias and will be taught how to divide and store them at home. Field & Florist will also lead participants in making a fall arrangement featuring dahlias and other seasonal materials. Additional tubers from the Field & Florist farm will be for sale.
