We began growing dahlias in 2021 when we were gifted 5 tubers from a dear friend and flower farmer extraordinaire. It's been nonstop since. We planted 75 tubers in 2022, and have plans for 600+ in 2023. Keep an eye out for fall bouquets.
When seeds are harvested from any particular dahlia, they will produce a completely unique plant. This can then be cultivated into a brand new variety of dahlia breed!
We have bouquets available when the blooms are pumping- usually only late July through early October. As soon as the first frost hits Northwood, our lovely dahlias begin their winter rest.
At the end of each season, after the first frost, the dahlia plants get cut down and the tubers are dug up. Each clump can produce several new tubers. Because of this, we plan to have a tuber sale each winter/spring to share any excess tubers. The tubers from any particular dahlia produce exact clones of the plant they were taken from.
