Tod's 2009 Dahlias for Postage

West Caldwell, NJ(Zone 6b)

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.

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

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. :)

Tod I'd like a box as well. Whatever you have. I'm not particular.

Thanks,

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? :(

If I can't wake it up, White Flower Farm has American Dream:

Hi Tod,
I would be interested in any leftovers that you might have left also. I only have one that I just bought at Lowes so any would be appreciated.

Thanks anyhow, Tod. If there was something else I wanted from WFF it might be worth ordering but with the cost of shipping I'll skip it.
