Where can I buy Dahlias bulbs !! Please :))
Where can I buy Dahlias bulbs !!
I guess I could imagine they would be less available locally for you.
this is the best link of suppliers
you can also check in garden watchdog or plant scout for additional information on cultivars or suppliers
are you sure you really want these....he he he
Oh yes ! When e sold our home down the street a couple years ago we had aout 12 named ( did not keep track) plants. They were amazing we had zillions of flowers :)) Our neighbors were amazed. But the people that bought our home did not take care of the wonderous garden beds threw out the corner lot we left them :((
Now I'm dreaming of having more :)) Just a few bulbs will be fine :))
Thanks for the information.
I have ordered from Dan's and Aztec myself. Other's have been happy with Connell's,Accent,Swan Island, Danielle's. I put in my order with Corralitos this year.
Have not heard of Love House.
I actually can find a lot locally also.
OK, be sure to enter your experience in Garden Watchdog. There are a lot of sellers and not many reiviews.
I bought mine from Easy to grow bulbs. I got some with burgandy foliage that are just stunning.
Swan Island has good tubers. I haven't ordered from them myself but just love their actual acreage we get to tour. I am sure other people will chime in on their favorite places to order from.
Like Al says, I buy locally too besides trading.
You could always trade with people here on DG too.
Thanks everyone ! I just went to look at Corralitos Gardens wow :))
Now how do you choose which ones to buy !! They are all so beautiful ! We have a nice snuuy l shape garden bed being prepared
that will be in front of a fenced in are where we have a well which will be perfect for them :))
bigcityal I noticed Corralitos sells plants rather than tubers do you prefer this ?
Thanks ~ Allison
well for me it's a bit easier as I know what forms I like(WL, AA ID, LC) and then just pick the colors I think I need. I have never ordered live dahlias before so we'll see. As long as the company has a guarantee on what they sell it shouldn't matter too much.
trade you say Carol....hmmm,I never thought of that ;)
Thanks something to think about . Maybe I could try both :))
but you said you were only getting a couple........you're done for like the rest of us.
Yes ! But they say you must spend so much money :)) I so a blue flower on one link I liked too :)) Gosh I'm sure I will have to get at least 6 :)) and this will be hard as there are so many pretty ones !
There are no real blue dahlias so don't get your hopes up. Yeah I pretty much order an amount under the shipping charge increase(without getting crazy). They don't all have minumum charges and many companies offer the same tubers.
Yep, another dahlia addict coming along nicely here, LOL
daisyruffles I saw some of your pictures you have a yard full of beautiful Dahlias :)) WOW !
And Al saw many of your beauties in Plant Files.
See anything goes outside Hubby waters and cares for :)) Good for me ! And I enjoy the beauty !
I am already missing the soil there as I popped out a lot of the clumps with just one push of the fork compared to 4 or 5 at home.
Those look good at work, Al. I had a couple at work too. I need to grow more tho. But most of the areas are in the part shade so............. am not sure if they would get enough sun to bloom nicely.
Violet, thanks for the nice comments about my dahlias. Yes, I do love dahlias!!!!!
But you get to have someone else water? How nice! We here spend hours with our dahlias between deadheading and watering them.
Carol - I always weeded the grass out my dahlias, you need to make sure they don't weed the dahlias out of there grass ;)
Al sorry about your dahlia disease . I read your thread about this. How are they doing now ? Did you have to throw away ? Do Dahlias get Mites ? I ask as with African violets plants that get Mites get these same symptoms.
When we had our Dahlia for two years down the street berfore we sold that home we were Blessed with no problems. None of our neighbors grow them that we have seen. We live in a 55 plus neighborhood . Many people can't grow plants. Me I'm 99 percent bed bound . With my husband health we have to have gardeners pre-pare our garden beds. We sold out home next door this October . This home has several garden beds but the owner before loaded the beds with rocks and just placed pots on top of them. We wanted to extend the garden beds and curve them some for design. Last months we had one large bed and two circle beds pre-pared and humus organic soil brought in and plants most of which we grew from cuttings, trades or had for years trans-planted ! We have three more large ones and the L shape one garden bed also we need to have done for us. .
We enjoy growing many different plants . Seeds are fun too !
It's going to be hard to pick out dahlia for our gardens ! There are so many beautiful ones their all Beautiful ! I'm sure we will be getting 6 -12 :)) I wrote Al to " Corralitos " they said ours would be shipped in April. Some Vendors ship start shipping in Jan. :)
I am enjoying looking at all your stunning photos and reading beack threads of how you grow your Dahlias !
OUr neighbors were amazed last time we grew them with all the flowers we had ! I can't wait !
my dahlia disease is all mental!
yes dahlias get mites, in fact I think I get them all
thanks for the compliments, I can't wait either. Mine can go in the ground in mid May here.
I just figured it was full of secret text and codes I didn't understand ;)
All plants look very healthy there, VT
Hope you do get some just as good plants growing nice for you too.
