Dahlia tuber suppliers: The best, the worst, and the acceptable.
Which suppliers, growers have you had the best experience with over the years? Which did you ave a bad experience with and which were simply ok?
I had a good experience with Swan Island.
I ordered from Hilltop Dahlias this year, and received an email asking when to ship them, and I told them to ship on April 15 or so, so I should be getting them soon. I'm hoping for good things there.
I ordered from Dans dahlias a few year ago, and it couldnt have gone worse unless they took money and ran, but they might as well have.......
I've bought from local stores and it's been a mixed bag..... I grew one variety last year that turned out to be mislabelled, and wasnt the same variety as advertised. I had another die after a 5 day rainy spell right after planting, but that wasnt the supplier's fault. I've also gotten a few good ones too.
What has been your experience?
