San Leandro Dahlia Society is a group of people who love dahlias and want to share that love with the world. Well, at least with the people in the East Bay. Our members come from the San Francisco area, around San Leandro, and as far away as Brentwood. We share successes and failures as well.
What's happening in your garden? Let the experts help you solve some of the garden problems.
Many growers start to dig and divide their plants now. Some wait until December or January. Others wait until February.
Digging and Dividing TubersClick here to go to the "How to dig and divide" page.
Our dahlias are done, or almost done for the year. It was a great year for beautiful blooms. Now we give the tubers a chance to grow and be ready for another super year.
That white stuff all over your leaves is powdery mildew. It happens this time of year. Bad stuff. It's easier to prevent it than to get rid of it. One way to get rid of it is to cut the leaves off. The photos below show the before and after. What's left is healthy.
We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 7 pm at the Church of Christ (new location as of November 2019) 601 MacArthur Blvd. Our meetings include some business and a great program to encourage, demonstrate, or teach methods of raising more beautiful dahlias. Dahlia related questions are welcomed.
