Garden club learns about dahlia cultivation
The Quononoquott Garden Club will open their program to the public next week for a talk on the cultivation of dahlias.
Walter Taylor, a resident of North Kingstown and longtime member of the Rhode Island Dahlia Society, will discuss growing the many types of dahlias as well as how to properly preserve the tubers for future planting. The program will be on Monday, Oct. 17, beginning at 12:30 p.m. at the library.
Prior to the program, the club will hold their business meeting at 11 a.m. and hear from the nominating committee on the new slate of officers for the 2006-07 term. The hospitality team includes Donna Wells, Lee Howard, Jennifer Sherer, and Shirley Utterback.
