Silver Spring Garden Club Garden Mart, Brookside Gardens


Chef Dolores and I attended the Silver Spring Garden Club Garden Mart at Brookside Gardens in the Wheaton area of Montgomery County, Maryland. We purchased a supply of dahlia tubers, for our home garden, from the representatives of the National Capital Garden Society. I wish I had their dahlia growing expertise.

Hi Roy.  I will wager that you could learn a lot about gardening from these folks at the Silver Spring Garden Club Garden Mart at Brookside Gardens.

Roy, I bought some dahlia roots too, and have not seen them pop through yet.  Hopefully soon.   Hope yours do well.

I haven't planted any dahlias this year but still might. I have planted dozens of geraniums, red in color.
