The Society




Welcome to the Essex Dahlia Society website which is for the benefit of Society members and anybody interested in growing dahlias.  The Society hopes that you will find the site of use.

Are  you interested in becoming a serious dahlia growing?
The Essex Dahlia Society is running a workshop on Wednesday 28th August at 6.30pm. This will be held at Paul and Christine Schramm’s garden in Latchingdon. The workshop will be dealing with growing and showing, and there will be a follow-up workshop in December on tuber storage, preparation and cuttings.
Places are limited, so if you are interested, please contact Paul as soon as possible at


If you would like to become a member of the Society please go to the Membership page for details.  Following  our forthcoming AGM, Committee and contact details will be posted.   As well as the information available we hope you will enjoy looking at some of the photographs in the gallery.

The Society AGM this year (2019) will be held immediately after the plant sale at Writtle University College.

With very best wishes for your dahlia year.
