Helpful Tips

  • If you are picking your dahlias, wear clothing and shoes that can get dirty. It’s often very wet in the mornings, rain boots/pants are helpful to keep you comfortable.
  • It takes longer than you might think to pick orders. The farm is 7 acres and it takes a while to walk between varieties so plan enough time for your visit.
  • Bring water to drink if you plan to be at the farm for a while. It can get very hot in the afternoon.
  • The best time to pick is mid-morning or after 4:00pm during the summer.

  • Buckets, bring more than you think you will need. Short buckets like car washing buckets work well. Water will be provided.
  • Pruning shears or quality scissors, if you are cutting your own.
  • Payment, please pay by cash or check at the time of pickup. A receipt will be provided.

Dahlia Care

“Anything in life worth having is worth working for.”

Dahlia flowers come in a variety of colors and shapes. They are beautiful blooms but do require more care than other flower types. We want to share our dahlia care and handling tips.

  • Dahlias will hydrate better in warm water. Make sure your vase is clean and filled with at least 3”-4” of warm water.
  • Carefully separate the stems and remove any lower foliage that would fall below the water line.
  • Give each stem a clean diagonal cut. Cut at least 1” off each stem and quickly place in water.
  • Recut the stems and change the water daily. This will prevent bacteria from forming and clogging the stems.
  • Keep dahlias in a cool area, away from direct sunlight.
