The annual tuber sale at Longwood Gardens will be here soon - Saturday, May 20, 9 am to 3 pm (or until sold out!). Come purchase tubers grown in the gardens of the members of The Greater Philadelphia Dahlia Society. Along with the tubers, you receive answers to any questions you might have about growing dahlias. Hope to see all interested growers at our sale. Tubers are $5 each. Perhaps some of you will display your own blooms at our show in September!

All are welcome to join our dahlia society; our membership fee is very reasonable and entitles you to the quarterly newsletter and our four annual meetings.

Details and the membership form are available under the About tab, then GPDS membership, above.


The Greater Philadelphia Dahlia Society

The Greater Philadelphia Dahlia Society was founded in 1948 for the purpose of promoting the dahlia in its many forms and varieties. An annual Dahlia Show is held in September. Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, is kind enough to allow us to use their beautiful facility as a backdrop for the fruits of our labor. Anyone interested in growing dahlias is invited to participate in the Society.
