Ales & Ideas: Dally in the Dahlias: History, Disease and Prevention

Nichole Warwick has been playing in the dirt since she was 7 and now is on a quest to help people have access to scientifically accurate information and base their gardening practices to have healthy happy plants. Nichole will take you on a stroll through the virtual garden as you learn about the history and cultural significance of dahlias as they moved from central Mexico into popularity in European gardens. Then we’ll dig into bacteria and viral diseases that have been impacting the plants and learn about ways to minimize the spread of these issues to other plants. Grow your knowledge this spring about keeping
your plants healthy.

Doors open at 6pm with food and beverages available via the Taproom window, talk starts at 7pm. All ages welcome and never a cover.
