New Virus Tri-Fold Available
Dr. Hanu Pappu, Carl F. and James J. Chuey Endowed Chair for Dahlia Research and Development at Washington State University, is promoting a strategy which can help reduce the number of dahlia plants with virus in your garden. Based on his research and field studies the strategy has proven successful in several dahlia gardens. The strategy involves disinfection of tools and removal of diseased and sub-par plants from your garden. The ADS has produced a full color tri-fold brochure describing this strategy which is titled: Virus in Dahlias – Be Part of the Solution.
We encourage the local and regional dahlia organizations in the ADS to distribute the tri-fold brochure to not only their members but the gardening public as well. This is an important step in battling virus in dahlias that benefits all dahlia growers.
