A farm favorite for fall. While Andrew comes on later than other varieties, he far surpasses all other varieties for late season production which is fantastic, given the golden color. The shape is unique and stands out among all other elements in an arrangement. You can harvest when it’s hardly open to fill your cooler before frost or to protect from cucumber beetles and Andrew still comes through.
We will start shipping dahlia orders March 2021. When you place and pay for your order you will receive a confirmation email. You will receive a second email the day your order ships in March letting you know that it has been sent. All orders will be shipped via USPS. Our dahlia tubers will be packed in vermiculite or perlite and are able to withstand shipping. Please, open and store, or plant appropriately upon receipt.
Plant tubers after spring frost in well drained soil in full sun. Plant 4-6" deep and 18-24" apart. Most plants will be between 36-48" and should be staked or netted. To help avoid rot, wait to water tubers until they have sprouted. Dahlias will bloom from summer until the first frost. Dead-head or cut for continuous blooms.
Dahlias are not winter hardy. You must dig and store the dahlias appropriately from year to year.
