Hosted Excursion

Whatcom Dahlia Society Show and Garden Spot Nursery

Dahlias are easy to grow. There is a huge range of colors and forms and they can be enjoyed in abundance from mid-July until the first frost. They come in all colors of the Rainbow and are FUN!

The Annual Dahlia Show, open to the public and free of charge, is hosted by the Whatcom County Dahlia Society growers. According to Bloomquist, at the show’s peak (and before there were issues related to crossing the border), there were more than 3,000 entries, “but now averages about 1,600 entries.” It is mandatory that all flowers include and show a set of leaves so that the judges can gauge the overall health of the plant among a full page of rules.

After lunch we will visit the Garden Spot Nursery. There we will be greeted by smiling faces ready to help us with whatever needs we may have. If you have a particular plant in mind or a gardening question, the team is there to help you. There will be plant ideas that will complement the plants you already have or suggestions for that difficult area in your garden.
