Do not leave packages containing dahlias outside in freezing weather for an extended period of time. Due to the volume of orders we receive, we are not able to hold, delay, or change your order. If you plan to be out of town when we are shipping, please make sure you have a plan for someone to receive your package(s) for you.
Tubers will be packaged by variety in bags and shipped in a cardboard box or padded envelope. Storage medium is not included, so please be sure to move your tubers to proper storage if you are not planting right away. To prevent moisture loss, we recommend wrapping your tubers in newspaper or packing them in bags with peat, sawdust, or vermiculite. Minimize air flow and do not store in a wet or humid environment.
* Remember that tubers come in all shapes and sizes, and will break dormancy at different rates depending on the variety. If condensation appears on the packaging, open up the bag and air it out to prevent mold development on tubers.
Please understand that tubers at shipping will still be dormant, which can make eyes difficult to see.
