Kent Dahlia Society, founded in 1965, celebrated its 50th Annual Show in September 2016.
The Society is open to anyone who is interested in Dahlias, whether they wish to exhibit them or just enjoy growing them for general garden use – everyone is welcome.
Society members come not just from Kent, but many other counties, including Essex, Surrey, Sussex. Our membership includes those who belong just because they enjoy dahlias and grow them for pleasure in their garden, to those who are well established national exhibitors who take part in the National Dahlia Society shows.
Shows: The Annual Show, which includes open classes, is held in September at Otford Village Memorial Hall, High Street, Otford. This Show is one of the largest in the South East, attracting exhibitors of national standard. This, however, does not deter the less experienced exhibitor from entering – all are welcome.
