Co-op Matters

Letter to the Editor

To the editor:

Regarding Huntsville being “about as south as they (dahlias) can be raised” that was in the article “Devoted to Dahlias” (March 2015), your readers might want to know that throughout the 1940s and until his death in 1975, my dad grew a variety of gorgeous dahlias in Auburn. I don’t know if he purchased a particular kind or not, but I know they bloomed profusely and gave him, Grady Loftin, and his friends a great deal of pleasure. Maybe your readers might want to go ahead and give them a try.

Thanks,
Grady Sue Loftin Saxon
