PRODUCT OF THE MONTH – DAHLIA

And we’re back! Dahlia is the subject, Anton Spaargaren your source of information.
Todays topic: how to take care of your flowers?

Dahlia are not that different from other flowers when it comes to care. Cut the stems diagonally and don’t put them close to a fruit bowl (the etheleen gas that fruits ‘exhail’ does not agree with cutflowers), but specific to Dahlia is to put them in a cooler place (and don’t expose them to direct sunlight) and be sure to water them sufficiently. Dahlia are quite thirsty flowers… this thirst they have in common with humans during the summer.

Next week some trivia to finalize our Dahlia story.

We took these pictures at the temporary Dahlia Garden of CNB Lisse. Thanks CNB Lisse!
