Dahlia Tuber FAQ
For a complete informational guide to growing, head to the shop to purchase our Dahlia Guide.
When will the dahlias go live each year?
Our goal is to have them posted by Thanksgiving each year. Frost typically hits mid October and the digging process begins.
Can I preorder before the sale goes live?
Sorry, no preorders allowed. With the volume of orders we receive for tubers, all orders must be submitted through our online shop to properly track inventory.
How does dahlia tuber shipping work?
Our default shipping option. We will begin shipping tubers in March 2023 and will continue until all orders are fulfilled.
We will be sure to watch the weather and ship accordingly if there is a weather event during shipping time.
We will email you a shipping notification along with your tracking number when your order is shipped.
EARLY: *LIMITED AVAILABILITY*
Early Shipping is recommended for growers in warmer zones and those who want to propagate. If you would like your order to be shipped out between February-March, add the Early Shipping item to your cart. Boxes will be shipped with insulation and Uniheat warmers to ensure their safe arrival.
Early Shipping is limited to 300 orders for the 2022-2023 season. Tubers will be shipped between February and March as time and weather allow.
If you would like some tubers to arrive early, please place one order with the Early Shipping option and another order without it.
DUE TO THE VOLUME OF ORDERS WE RECEIVE, WE ARE NOT BE ABLE TO HOLD, DELAY, OR CHANGE YOUR ORDER. IF YOU PLAN TO BE OUT OF TOWN DURING THESE SHIPPING TIMES, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A PLAN FOR SOMEONE TO RECEIVE YOUR PACKAGE(S) FOR YOU.
Do you ship internationally?
Tubers are available for shipping within the US only. Unfortunately due to phytosanitary certificate requirements, we can not ship to Canada.
Can I pick up my order?
We no longer offer a pick up option for tubers. Your order must be shipped or delivered (available within 30 miles radius of our location).
Do you offer wholesale prices?
We do not offer wholesale pricing, but we offer bulk deals on some varieties. Those deals will be listed in the item.
Can I add on to my order?
All sales are final. Once your order has been completed, we cannot modify or update your order.. If you would like to order additional tubers, please place another order and they will be shipped separately. Shipping charges will not be combined.
Will I be charged sales tax?
Sales tax laws have changed and you will now only be charged sales tax if you reside in Ohio or Michigan since our business is located in a taxable state.
Are your dahlia tubers organic?
While we are not certified organic, we grow with organic practices. Our tubers are dipped with Oxidate after dividing and before being put into storage. See the OMRI certificate for that product here.
Are your tubers tested for disease?
We regularly test our tuber and plant material throughout the growing season in partnership with the Plant Pathology Program at The Ohio State University, and also Oregon State University.
