Dahlia Open Days - Saturday & Sunday 26th & 27th August 2017
Come and visit us on our special Dahlia Open Days to see our extensive collection, which includes new and exclusive varieties. Plants will be available for sale and orders can be placed for next season's tubers. The nursery has around 200 different varieties on display and grows around 3,000 dahlia plants every year for sale either at the nursery or at shows we attend during August and September. Our experienced growers, including a member of the RHS Dahlia Trials Forum, will be on hand to give advice.
Our first 2016 Open Days will be be during the late August Bank Holiday, Saturday and Sunday 27th & 28th August from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
What to expect; we don't believe in having large blocks of each dahlia variety, because although it looks impressive (see some of the images of Anne fighting through them to select the ones for next season), it's unrealistic for most gardeners. So we've planted out a number of beds which have a mix of dahlias and other perennials, so that visitors can get a better idea of planting combinations. Many more dahlias can be seen on the nursery itself.
We will also have our full range of spring & early summer flowering bulbs in stock for visitors to choose from.
If you can't manage either of these days, we're open most Friday's during August & October, and open by appointment at other times. Garden clubs and groups are welcome. This year teas & cakes will be available on the Dahlia Open Days. A map of how to find us is on the "Finding Us" page.
Below is a (very) short video clip of the one of the 2013 Open Days.
