I've had a few people messaging lately about the dahlia tuber pre-orders, so I thought I better do a quick update to everyone.
Our tubers are currently packed up and ready to send sitting in a temperature controlled room in the Netherlands waiting to be shipped out and the end of June. We're forcing them to switch their hemisphere seasons so the supplier is helping trick them into thinking it's still winter, and when they ship out they'll also be in a temperature & humidity controlled container to keep holding them back a tad longer (it's the start of summer over there now so they'll be dying to get growing right about now if left to their own devices :)
They should get to NZ at the very end of July, and after MPI inspect them should hopefully be in my hands ready to start shipping out in August sometime. Once I receive them I'll need to figure out how many tubers will fit into what sized boxes and start sending out invoices to everyone (or partial invoices for the shipping for everyone who generously opted to pay when you placed your order).
I'm hoping we don't have any significant losses during transit, but please be aware that that is a hopefully slim possibility but all things going well we won't have to cross that bridge. But once I've taken a finally tally of what we've got vs orders etc, I'll release the last extras for sale probably late August/September sometime.
We've dug up all our own grown tubers late last month, and will start dividing in the next couple of weeks, if we end up with any spares we'll also be posting those for sale at the same time as the others too, though they'll probably be pretty limited compared to the imports this year.
So lovely seeing your Top10 plus some delightful extras, love how you’ve described them and eagerly await my order, must say very tempted with some of the ones you mention that you grew last season. Here’s hoping for a fabulous upcoming season, where you can enjoy all your hardwork w your babies and their new home. Take care Jx
Susanna—Yes I’ll be sending an email out later on when the last of them are made available come late August/September. So make sure you’re signed up to the newsletter if you’re not already :)
Thanks Virginia :)

Love to order a few tubers from you when they come up for sale.
Do you send an email out when they are available or can I pre order now.
Many thanks and keep the great work up!
Thanks for the update and good luck with creating your new garden. I look forward to getting my dahlia bulbs and also visiting your new garden.
