Post #7738770

Yes, its that time again, actually I'm quite late again! I will be offering most of my 2009 tubers in flat rate boxes (one per requester), as many as will reasonably fit and still ensure tuber safety. Last year the box cost was $10.35, I have to check if that went up by now.

I will do this on a first come first serve basis, and keep it going till all are gone. As I go through my orders from this year, I may add some of the freebies that I've received to the available list. You can post your preferences here, or send me a dmail.

Anyway, you'll find the varieties available below, with a tuber count. This count is the number of tubers I have, they are not all sprouting yet by any means. I don't want to send you a non-sprouting tuber, so I've put them in bags of potting soil by windows, so they should be coaxed awake if possible. As a reference, here are the links to the photos I posted of the offerings. Some available you will not see there, as no decent flowers were produced before frost.

http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1020605/
http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1041077/

I will likely have another contest if I only have one box left and more than one requester remaining.

Here are the varieties available:

Abracadabra (3), Ad Lib (4), Aitara Majesty (3), Almand Supreme (4), Alva's Supreme (1), American Dream (1), Angela Dodi (10), Anna (5), Argyle Ray (2), Arthur's Delight (13), Barbara Hardisty Kantor (2), Belle of Barmera (8), Bloomquist Glow (5), Bob Fitzjohn (7), Cafe au Lait (8), Candy Jayne (6), Clearview Snowcap (4), Corin (4), Creekside Volcano (3), Curly Flame (7), Debra Ann Craven (5), Dick Westfall (7), Elma Elizabeth (6), Enbun (3), F.

Mae (3), Fern Ridge Pride (3), Flapjack (3), Freedom Fighter (4), Gitt's Respect (1), Grand Prix (3), Hollyhill 6-in-1 Red (5), Hollyhill 6-in-1 Yellow (3), Hollyhill Jester (4), Inland Dynasty (3), Island Flare (8), Jewel Huston (3), Kea Magic (4), Kenora Jubilee (3), Kogane Fubuki (5), Laura's Dream (1), Lavender Perfection (2), Lupin Peltier (4), Marlene Joy (6), Marvelous Mel (2), Masurao (3), Mingus Fern G. (5), Mingus Kay Lynn (10), Mom's Special (8), Mr. Larry (3), Ms. Megan (3), "Mystery Tuber" (5), "Narnia" (11), Northern Lights (3), Oreti Stacy (1), Parkland Glory (5), Penhill Andrea's Memory (3), Penhill Maroon Globe (2), Pinelands Cyrowen (3), Polyand (3), Prime Minister (4), Radegast (8), Regina (7), Ryn Fou (3), Sea Helado (2), Skipley Grande (12), Snoho Doris (19), Snoho Triumph (7), Sorbet (9), Survivor (5), Sylvia Hunter Craig (9), Tartan (2), Tabejo (2), Thomas Edison (1), Tioga Autumn (1), Twilight Time (5), Vagabond(7), Variegated Akita (5), Walter Hardisty (7), Wanda's Aurora (7), White Kelvin (7), Winkie Colonel (5), Wyn's Delta Frank (6), Wyn's Honeycomb (1), Wyn's N.E.W.

Hi Tod - Looks like I am first in line on the request list for the year. I had pretty much filled my available gardening space, but now I am slowly expanding out into the lawn - digging it up foot by foot to prepare new beds... I'll send you a dmail of the list of requests.

By the way, Medium size flat rate postage for this year is $10.70.

Thanks a lot!!!!!

The postage is $10.70 for a regular size flat rate box. On average I get about 8 in there, depends on how small/big they are. I really don't know how the professional sellers get so many more in there. :)

pirl, i saved the American Dream with you in mind, but I don't have tremendous hope for it, it wasn't a perfect tuber. We'll see. Ms. Megan is sort of iffy too. Doesn't it bum you out when one you really like doesn't produce a good crop? :(

Hi Marie

I think you are #28, I will have to see. I've only got 12 boxes done so far. I have more than a few of rotted tubers, must have been the insanely wet March, will have to see if I can get that far.

Anyone beyond #28, well, I will probably have at least two contests, I got a bunch of freebees this year, so that will be one of those at least.

I don't know how you get through stuff like this, Tod. I'm doing something very similar but on a much smaller scale for my friends and it's a bit of a pain sorting through this stuff and packing it all up. Fortunately I only have to send a few through the mail everything else is getting put temporarily into a ventilated plastic bag with some sphagnum peat moss and handed off to those that have been wanting some dahlia tubers. I'm sorting it all out and making sure everyone gets a variety of sizes and colors and trying to evenly distribute it. I think I get way too over-analytical about these small details. They'd better pay off in the end for everyone.

I don't know either, I am going to get a bunch of vermiculite and insulation next year, I think it would be easier to pack that way. I was a bit frazzled of late, so i thought, why would any more sprout at this point? I usually reach this point, three weeks in potting soil is probably enough to get most tubers going. So for the last two days I've been unbagging everything left, cleaning it off, wrapping it up. There were like 97-98 good tubers left - and I thought I was about done by now! So most who asked will get something. Now if I can get enough boxes from the post office, I only ordered 25 by mail.

And I've got 177 more of my tubers to plant, aaaaaggghh.. And will it please stop raining, its pushing my flimsy row covers to the limit. 1/2 inch rain indeed. More like 2 inches.
