Welcome! The Alberta Dahlia and Glad Society is a group of dahlia and gladiolus enthusiasts in Alberta, Canada! We like to keep our group simple and informal and we meet often at the Piper Creek Trial Garden in Red Deer. In the early Spring we get all our dahlia tubers out of winter storage and swap with each other and sell the extra tubers to the general public.
In late Spring we plant the dahlia tubers that have been contributed to the Trial Garden and weed, stake, and de-bud through the summer. However, not all is work! We have a ‘Summer Celebration” in early August with fun activities and courses, and then we have our Annual certified Flower Show in late August. Also, we often exhibit at other local flower shows as well.
