Prices Per Stem
Dahlias are a summer through fall flower. Fresh cut Dahlias are available July through October or up to first frost.
Dahlias are planted when the ground temperature reaches around 60 degrees. In our area that means that depending on Mother Nature, planting usually begins in May.
Some Dahlias are early bloomers and some late therefore some varieties may not be available until mid to late August. Depending on when they are planted, first blooms appear 75 to 120 days after planting.
Dahlias have hollow stems much like a straw. Be mindful of this when handling.
If you are planning an event, please contact us for an appointment to walk through our display garden. We will post our summer hours on our website and Facebook page once the garden opens for the season.
It is important to us that we are able to provide you with your first choices however we rely on Mother Nature to make those choices available for you.
Please contact us for delivery options and a pricing quote.
Please bring buckets for your fresh cut flowers. A five gallon size works well for up to approx. 50 stems depending on the size of the flowers. Two or three gallon buckets work best for the smaller flowers such as Pompons (usually used for boutonnieres).
After we cut the Dahlias, we give them a hot bath with Floralife floral food/preservative. Floral hot bath information can be found on our Facebook and website pages. The bottom 1 or 2 inches of the stem will discolor from the bath. That is normal and may be cut off if you wish.
Typically, your Dahlias should last 4-5 days after they are cut however we do suggest using your flowers within 2-3 days of delivery.
Some fresh cut dahlia varieties hold up better than others. Some waterlily and orchid forms don’t hold up as long as the decorative or cactus type forms.
If you are having an outdoor wedding, you may want to consider the type of vases or containers you will use. A light wind may blow over your arrangements if they are in vases shaped like coke bottles. Consider using vases that are bottom heavy, or use marbles to help weigh them down.
Storage: Your stems should be kept in a cool dark place until use rather than any direct sunlight or warm temperatures. You may put them in a cooler (refrigerator) but it is not necessary and should not be kept cooler than 40 degrees.
We accept cash, major credit cards, or checks from local residents with I.D. We do not require a deposit. Full payment is due 7 days prior to cutting/pick-up.
