    Cracking the Dahlia Code

    Ever wondered what dahlia growers and sellers are talking about when they say Vassio Meggos is an “A ID L LV10” or Mr Ralph is a “B FD DB BR/OR”? Confused about the difference between a “Formal Dec” and an “Informal Dec”? Not quite sure what the following sentence means “The ray florets are involute for the whole of their length and fully involute for half their length”?

    Well then the next VDS meeting is the one for you. Two experienced growers will take you on a photographic tour through the terms and codes of dahlias.

    The meeting is Thursday June 2 at 7:30pm at St Michaels and All Angels Church 4733 W. Saanich Rd (map). Everyone is welcome.
