Order Information


NO ORDERS ACCEPTED AFTER MARCH 15.   On March 15 we donate our excess tubers to our local north Puget Sound dahlia societies for their fund raising efforts.


TERMS: Please send check or money order with your order.  We are not set up to take credit cards.


TAX: WASHINGTON residents.  Add sales tax to TOTAL amount of order including shipping and handling charges. The rate to use is your local rate.  Washington’s new destination based tax system is the main reason that this will be our last list.  For a small mail order operation the paperwork and new accounting make it impractical to sell in state.  If we have new introductions of interest in the future they will be sold to those outside Washington state only.


FOREIGN ORDERS:  If shipped April 1 add $20.00 for shipping and inspection fees.  For shipping any other time add $25.00.  Orders sent to Canada can not be guaranteed because of customs and postal delays.


U.S.ORDERS:   On tuber orders to be shipped before April  please add $12.00 shipping and handling charge.  For orders shipped from April 1 on just add $7.00 shipping and handling charge.   We ship by US Postal Service, priority mail, on Mondays only.  Please specify which Monday  you want your tubers shipped.  If you do not specify we will ship in April.  If weather is severe in your area we will hold until it breaks.   Recent postal increases put our cost for packages at $7.00 to $25.00 for postage and materials. 


GUARANTEE:  We guarantee tubers to be correctly named, healthy, and ready to plant.  If you are not satisfied, please contact us by October 1 of the year purchased for your choice of refund, credit or replacement.  We know that things happen.  Sometimes a tuber will rot or a variety that has always appeared healthy will show disease.  It is important to us that our customers are satisfied.  Let us know the problems and we will try to fix them.


Susan and I thank all our customers and friends for your support through the years.
