Dahlias

Dahlia Tuber Sale

We have certified organic dahlia tubers for sale this spring for $10/bulb. We will have them Saturdays at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market, or you may contact us directly to place an order and arrange pickup at twotracksacres@gmail.com. Unfortunately we cannot offer shipping at this time. Varieties are limited and available on a first come, first serve basis, so please contact us if you are interested in a specific type.

All dahlias are dinnerplate varieties, and should be stored in a cool, dark place until planting. They should be planted outside after danger of last frost- late May/early June.  Plants reach 3′-5′ tall and should be staked. They will send out multiple blooms from around early August until the first frost.


 

Early bird special: Sign up with payment by April 15 and receive 2 free organic dahlia tubers for your garden, or one extra bouquet for the season (your choice).

What is a CSA? A CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, is an agreement between a customer and farmer where the customer pays upfront to receive a weekly share of product throughout the season. You get fresh flowers all summer, and we get guaranteed sales and money in the spring when it’s most needed. It’s a win win, and we also get to know you better as our long term customers.

What will I get? Our certified organic bouquets are made of large, dinner plate size dahlias with 10-15 flowers per bunch. Because they are so large, the vase life is 2-3 days, which is why it’s important to get them fresh from the farm.

How to sign up: Let us know you are interested by emailing twotracksacres@gmail.com or calling Stephanie at (616) 734-9123. We will send you a confirmation email with details about how to send payment and reserve a CSA spot.

Other ways to find our bouquets: Our dahlias are available Wednesdays and Saturdays in Ann Arbor, and Sundays in Howell, to purchase from our stall. However, we are offering this CSA membership as a special mid week option for those who are as crazy about these flowers as we are. You may also come to the farm for flowers and veggies, or u-pick, just contact us ahead of time.

Dahlia care: If possible keep flowers in a cool shady spot and change the water once a day to prolong vase life.
