Shows & Trials

The Society is involved in Dahlia Trials
These trials are for exhibition dahlias, and cultivars are grown with some under covers and others in the open to best assess how they perform in differing conditions.  Awards are given after a season's judging, the overall best cultivar receiving the Harry Howarth Memorial Medal.  Results are published in the Society's Winter Bulletin
