Dahlia Field Restoration
I would like to replenish the 3300 dahlia tubers that I lost to rain rot during the July rains I grow over 530 varieties here in Rockport. It will take a few years to reach the level I was at prior to this seasons devastation. For the last six years, my dahlias have been featured at the Rockport Farmers Market and Harvestfest. I supply dahlias to local florists, special events such as weddings, anniversaries and milestone birthdays. The Rockport Art Association had some artists come down and paint the dahlias in the field too. During the peak harvest season I have pick your own dahlia bouquet events at my field. One of my favorite quotes from someone during a pick your own event was that she was excited to find this magical jewel here in Rockport.
