About Us

The Nanaimo Gladiolus and Dahlia Society is a small dedicated group which was founded in 1964 and joined the Pacific Northwest Dahlia Conference shortly after and we're members of the American Dahlia Society,  the North American Gladiolus Council and the Canadian Gladiolus Society.    Members have the option to join these groups as well as to share  knowledge and encouragement to successfully grow glads and dahlias.  

Our mission is to encourage and inspire the growing, showing and enjoyment of gladiolus and dahlias.


Join us for evenings of gladiolus and dahlias:   

  • First Tuesday of every month, February through to October,  7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
