2018 CATALOG
Website updated October 6, 2017

I will not be open for 2018 sales until at least October 10th, 2017, and then on a very limited basis. Not all of the varieties shown will be available as tubers -- but may be available as rooted plants. Beginning this year, rooted plants and tubers will be shipped separately. That way you don't have to wait for the plants to get to shipping size before you start planting your tubers. If you are new to rooted plants, e-mail me and I will send you an explanation. E-mail is teresa@dahlias4u.com. Phone is 360-751-1280.

We are licensed and inspected by Washington State Department of Agriculture. All tubers are guaranteed to be true to name, disease free and have at least one live eye. If you have a problem, you must contact us by SEPTEMBER 1ST, 2017. A replacement tuber will be sent the following year. After that time, no replacement will be made. We are not responsible for weather, pests or insect problems or variegated or bi-color dahlias going solid.

 

 

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS -- You will be charged for a phyto-sanitary certificate, plus postage that will be determined by the number of tubers you order. I cannot give a blanket shipping charge due to different postage charges in different countries. Any permits required by your country are your responsibility. I pack the orders to arrive in the best condition possible; however, I can only guarantee the shipment as far as our customs. I am not responsible for what happens beyond there. Each international order is checked by our Department of Agriculture.
