I know there are some dahlia lovers out there thinking about their garden this coming summer. Did you know that many cut flower farmers purchase their tubers the fall preceding the upcoming spring planting season? It’s true! You can still find dahlia tubers, e.g. at the big box stores, local cut flower growers that propagate theirs each year, and national suppliers as well.
Last year I bought some tubers from Peace of Heaven Flower Farm in Avon NY. If shopping local is important to you, check them out! They have a good selection that would be a beautiful addition to any garden. Last year they opened their online dahlia tuber store in early April. http://Peaceofheavenflowerfarm.com/
