April 2nd Program:​

MGF Monthly Educational Meeting
7:00 PM


 2500 NE 78th Street, Vancouver WA 

with Eve Hanlin, 
Landscape designer

Learn to grow the dahlias of your dreams! From as large as a dinner plate to as tiny as a golf ball, dahlias come in almost every color, shape, and size imaginable. They are a fragrance-free, stunning flower that is a staple in summer bouquets and dazzling flower beds. They are easy to grow, and even easier to become obsessed with. Did you also know that dahlia petals and tubers are edible? Or that certain varieties can be pollinating-insect magnets?

Join us to discover the basics of growing great dahlias. The presentation will cover bloom types & varieties, soil preparation, planting, summer pruning, the basics of tuber “dividing,” and winter care. 

Eve Hanlin is a landscape designer, dahlia wrangler, college student, and self-proclaimed plant nerd.

Her small dahlia farm in NE Battle Ground just sort of “happened.” She started with a few varieties, and then a few more, and then a few more… Before she knew it, the obsession had grown into a patch of over 500 plants. Something had to be done with the extra tubers! She now sells her dahlia tubers online and at local venues between March and May every year. Through mostly trial and error, Eve experimented with many growing and tuber storage techniques until she developed a healthy flower patch and a passion for dahlias that is constantly growing. Eve is also the owner of Evelyn’s Garden, where she offers landscape design services and gardening consultations (
