Just wondering if anyone has any good recommendations? Where do you shop, what kind of dahlias do you like? Ebay anyone?
I've only bought from Swan Island Dahlias. Everything I've bought has been top notch, and when I had one tuber that didn't sprout they were quick to offer me compensation.
Wynne's Dahlias-- they're wonderful! They replace or refund without any hassle if something doesn't eye up & are full of wonderful info - they always answer email questions & give great advice-- they grow somewhere around 6,500-7,000 dahlias & their gardens are astonishing! Ever seen over 5,000 AA & A sized dahlias all in one place?? WOW!!
Oh, yeah - & they do it all themselves-- just the 2 of them!
because it is next to impossible to get any plant matter other than seeds up in Canada, we have different suppliers. Ferncliff is the best. Art's nursery has pictures to make you drool and a huge selection but otherwise less than spectacular.
Triple b, I am waiting for Abloom Gardens who have a very large variety and wonderful website to be able to ship internationally. You should be able to access them up there. Great friendly communications from them too.
Here is a link that might be useful: Abloom Gardens in Canada
Wynne's Dahlias ships all over the world- including Canada!
And Swan Island ships to Canada no problems too, and they're in Oregon somewhere just south of you.
wow I wish it were the same for roses!
I've ordered from Swan Island, Connells, Arrowhead and Cowlitz River. They all had excellent service and tubers were in great condition when they arrived. The cuttings from Corralito's are also very good. Teresa from Cowlitz replaced a tuber for me that I turned to mush out of my own stupidity. On top of that, got another free one with that replacement. Can't get any better than that.
I use Swan, Connells, Ferncliff, and Container gardens. Had 5 mushy ones from Swann this year. I think it is because they all ship so early. They usally replace if they have the tuber.
