In this extraordinary account of his spiritual adventures, the author presents his encounters with Mahatma Gandhi, Sri Aurobindo, Rabindranath Tagore, a lady sage who never slept, and many other Himalayan masters.

Years ago, when I was a young person working in New York City, a friend in my office mentioned that the New York Botanical Garden was having a big show of dahlias in bloom. He had read about it in the newspaper, and was going to see them on his lunch hour. He wondered if I'd like to go. At this point in my life, gardening was not high on my interest list, and I had never seen a dahlia. And I've never regretted it.
After a gritty subway ride from Manhattan up to the Bronx where the garden is located, we entered the famous institution through an elaborate entrance. In the distance, I caught sight of the grandiose Victorian greenhouse I'd seen in pictures, and we walked past an incredible pond with gigantic lotus blossoms in bloom — something else I'd never seen.
But around a turn on the pathway, we entered a circular lawn. It must have been about feet in diameter, a perfect circle enclosed in a perfectly trimmed, high curving hedge. And in front of the hedge, dahlias. Each plant was six feet tall or more, staked straight with almost no side branches, and at the top of each, one huge, perfect flower. These gigantic blooms were all at least 12 inches across, and were there in stunning solid colors and rainbows of bi and tri-colors.
They were literally explosions of color, each held high and directly facing us as we walked around the circle. Spotlights of beauty. Stunning natural masterpieces, coaxed into perfection by talent and dedication. They were truly breathtaking. Dahlias are always available for fall arrangements, along with the last roses and whatever else is left in the garden. The dahlias at the top of the arrangement, with the pointed petals, are Cactus Dahlias.
Photo by Don Paulson. I now appreciate the weeks and weeks of feeding, clipping, disbudding, and staking that went into that show at the New York Botanical Garden. In the years since, I've grown a lot of dahlias, but never in that spectacular, formal way. But it is certainly a memory no gardener would never forget. What are you waiting for?

Each year, we offer the tubers on advance sale for spring which begins in December. If you order then, you'll save a bundle, and your tubers will arrive at the proper planting time for your area. It's easy. Growing Dahlias. Tubers, Not Bulbs Even though they're often called bulbs, the roots of Dahlias are actually tubers as in tuberous begonia. After fear of last frost has passed, it's time to plant. Tubers from last summer are ready to go back into the ground. The soil for each hole is worked well, and since these are big dahlias, a stake is put into place early on.
We're planting three clumps of tubers per hole. Each will result in a large plant. Our large dahlia garden is planted and fertilized. Now all we need is regular watering and a few weeks. See below. Dahlia Spacing and Planting Once you have your tubers, it's important to space them correctly. Stakes can be placed at planting time. Or, stakes can be placed after plants have grown in. Saving Dahlia Tubers in Fall If you grow your dahlias in a hard-frost area, as I've done, there will be that morning in late fall when you walk out to your plants and find them pitifully blackened and dead.
About two weeks after planting, the beautiful foliage is up and growing. Soon after the foliage appears, buds follow. They're small now, but will soon expand into bloom. Buds are everywhere! A few weeks later, plants are full grown at about 4 feet, and all this color will continue until frost. Cutting Dahlia Flowers You simply won't be able to resist.
