Administrative history

The Saint John Dahlia Society formed on 14 March 1925 in Saint John, New Brunswick. The object of the society was the stimulation of the interest in and the promoting of the development and culture of dahlias. The members were interested in helping to establish a standard nomenclature, testing of new varieties, the study of the diseases of the dahlia and the discovery of remedies, the dissemination of information relating to this flower, securing uniformity in awarding prizes at flower shows; and giving exhibitions. The Saint John Dahlia Society participated in the Saint John Flower Show held at the New Brunswick Museum in Saint John from 9 September to 11 September 1933.
