Methven Care Trust - Dahlia memory to continue

Dahlia memory to continue

05-Oct-2018

Methven Care Trust was very grateful to receive a donation from Kate Wilwert and Barbara Wackwitz to the value of $668.00, in memory of their parents, the late Margaret and Colin Wilson. The money was raised from selling dahlia bulbs from their garden.

Kate said, "Mum and Dad (Margaret & Colin), brought the dahlias with them when they came to Methven from the farm. We found an old diary of Dad's from 1941 (Dad would have been 15years old) where he described that he had 'lifted the the dahlias' (took them out of the ground in autumn, to sort for winter). We're sure the plants Mum and Dad tended in Methven at their home, are descended from those originals".

Pictured below is the late Colin Wilson tending his dahlias.
