Pots will be wrapped in newspaper and boxed to ensure safe delivery. Some may need to be trimmed to ensure they fit within the box. This is an advance offering of tubers. For those living in warmer areas, plant immediately, for blooms in the coming weeks.
We recommend express postage for faster delivery times, as Australia Post are currently performing very slowly! (Yep! We didnt think it possible, but apparently it is!)

Click and collect is an option, at an arranged time. If you wish to click and collect from our 'drive through' option in Silvan, please select as such in the delivery optioins.

For best performance when planting your Dahlia select a position that is free draining, in either the full sun or part shade. Using a fork, prepare the ground to a depth of 25cm, ensuring the soil is light and friable. The tuber should be planted no deeper than 5cm below the soil surface, top dressing with a couple of handfuls of cow or sheep manure and a bed of mulch.
Dahlias flower from November right through until the first frosts for your area send them into their dormancy, often blooming for a good 6mths of the year. They are exceptional cut flowers, and make a brilliant addition to any picking garden.
Dahlias can be harvested and divided over the winter months when they are in their dormancy. It is important to wait for the plant to fully die down prior to harvesting. You can then share with friends or spread to new positions around the garden.
