I am not taking anymore orders this year (March 20th 2015)

(Posted in October)
I have recently finished wrapping and storing over 400 Dahlia tubers.

I will only have room to plant a little over 100, so I am interested in selling or possibly trading.

Since shipping will not happen until spring - right now I am just looking to set up possibilities. So please let me know if you would like me to ear-mark anything for you.

Available dahlias are listed on my plant list http://garden.org/lists/view/mandolls/?genus=&submit=Update+...
Quite a few are now marked NA, meaning that I have already promised all of the extras that I have.

Sales will be for $2.50 each - with a minimum order of 6 - shipping will be at cost.

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Thank You!

I'm very new to dahlias -- just started with 2 this summer -- and I've fallen in love! They bloom non stop, right up until frost. I can't wait for spring! Hurray!

Just wondering how the dahlias tubers are doing for you. I hope they all do well so that you have enough to fill the orders. I am so looking forward to getting them this spring. Can I ask you what is the name of the variety of the dahlia pictured for your user profile?

Hi Karen - I just came in 2 minutes ago, from unwrapping my tubers - getting ready to wake them up for spring. I lost a few to rot, but only 10 or so out of close to 400, so I am feeling good about it - when I look at your list - the only one that I might be shy on is Apricot Brandy, as I lost about 3 of those - some are just more difficult to store than others.

I am going to give them all some warmth and moisture for a few days to get them to eye up before I start shipping them off.

I'll tree-mail everyone to get addresses etc.

(The dahlia in my profile pic is Mingus Gregory. )

I just went through all of my tubers this morning and almost 1/2 have eyed up and are ready to go. I expect to begin shipping them off (weather permitting) by the end of next week.

I lost a few in winter storage, but I think I should be able to fill almost everyones requests - Thanks!!
