Successfully Growing Dahlias -Malcolm McDonald

Malcolm McDonald an avid Cobourg area dahlia grower, grows about 100 dahlias and 1000 gladiolus each year in his Baltimore garden. Malcolm gardens for pleasure, so he doesn’t “market” his flowers, but gives many to neighbours and friends. Malcolm will share photos of some of his favourite varieties, and well as offer tips on successfully growing dahlias, and caring for and storing the roots over winter. He will also demonstrate how to divide the roots to start new plants.
Malcolm lives in Cobourg with his wife. He also has 4 adult children and 6 grandchildren. He was trained as a Food Microbiologist, and retired in 2008 from Kraft Canada. Other gardening interests include hybridizing, growing African Violets under lights and Japanese and other flower arranging. Malcolm is a member of the Cobourg Horticultural Society and has volunteered at the District Level as well.
