Program:

For the Love of Dahlias with Chau Ho, Sunday, 1pm

A growing guide focusing on history, biology, and cultivation with a hint of mystery and murder.
With the sudden explosion in renewed popularity, the dahlia addiction is real. Learn cultivation techniques that works in the northeast, including planting instructions, staking advice, end-of-season care, winter storage, and much more. We’ll dwell into growing for show versus garden and professional cut flower. We’ll demystify the 20,000+ dahlia varieties with their immense combinations of sizes, forms, and colors. Learn to fully appreciate outrageously showy dahlias, from tiny pompoms to giant decoratives.
Chau is a visual designer with a lifelong passion for horticulture. Being a millennial, he carries a fresh perspective with a constant curiosity, an eagerness to learn, and a bit of laughter to share. Chau is a budding floral farmer who is only into his third season, but has already won numerous high awards at dahlia shows throughout New England. Chau helped found the New England Dahlia Society (NEDS) and is its current VP; he is also a student judge of the American Dahlia Society (ADS).
