Selling Dahlia Cuttings?
I fell in love with Dahlias last year and have decided to use them to make some new friends. Everyone who saw mine thought they were amazing, and it made me think that they are fairly unknown around here. My idea is to take lots of cuttings this spring and then sell them in 4" pots at our Farmer's Market in May/June.
I was wondering if there are any copyright issues to be concerned about? I will have pictures I took of last year's crop to show people what they will look like, and will label them with the name of the tuber I grew them from (which came from Swan Island Dahlias.)
My plan is to make it clear to buyers that these are grown by me, not Swan Island Dahlias. They will have a money-back guarantee if they don't flower, as long as I get a date-stamped picture of the plant before they pull it (or ideally, return the plant to me.) This way I can learn something from those that don't flower. I don't plan to charge very much, maybe $5, as this is my first year and I really don't know how well they'll do.
Does anyone else do this? Any experience/suggestions to pass along?
