These are the dahlias currently in our collection. At this time of year the tubers are resting for next year.

We will consider exchanging tubers with other growers.

In late spring  — say, late May through June — we will sell sprouted tubers and plants. Contact us directly or purchase them at Gilmanton’s Own Market. 

Cut flowers will be available in August. 

Once dahlias get started — which they will be if you buy plants — they are pretty easy and tolerant creatures. Japanese beetles sometimes like hiding in some blooms, but they are selective, it seems. Other than that, these will fill your garden with color and beauty from late July or early August until the frost takes them down. Of course, the actual size of the plants and blooms depends on local conditions.
