Dahlia Tuber Sale Information, Terms & Conditions

Sale Date & Time


Exclusive online Dahlia Tuber Sale!

If you have an item in your cart, it is not reserved until you complete your order, successfully check out, and receive a confirmation order number and email. Dahlia Mania, especially for some rare varieties, is a real thing. I know the frustration of trying to check out while things go out of stock. This functionality is related to e-commerce, and not something the growers/farmers can control. Please be respectful.

Once an order is placed, we are unable to add additional items or combine shipping. So add them all at once for combined shipping. If you would like to add any additional items, after you have checked out, you'll need to submit an additional order, which will ship separately.


We may set some limits on the most sought-after varieties and when inventory is limited, so that more people have a chance to grow them. This will clearly be stated in the product description. Please respect these limitations when placing your order. We will return any order that does not respect these limits.

Our Promise & Policies

Above all else, we want you to be happy with your order! Plant and tuber health is a top priority at our farm. We believe in working with nature and not against nature. Although we are not certified organic, everything is grown organically with plant and pollinator health in mind. We also introduce beneficial insects for pest and disease management. Aside from growing with plant and pollinator health in mind, we also proactively test our soil for healthy microbes and exclusively use rainwater for our entire garden.
We are proactive when dividing our tubers, and save only our best tubers for the sale. Some varieties do store better than others. We follow the American Dahlia Society "Gold Standard" for dividing by using sanitized tools between divides. Everything is labeled and those labels are carried throughout the entire process, from planting to storing to dividing to shipping. Prior to shipment, tubers are inspected again and approved for shipment. (Only the best tubers are shipped, witch also limits the quantity we have available to offer).

We guarantee that your tubers will arrive to you with at least one viable eye. Upon receipt of your order, please inspect your tubers immediately. If you have any concerns, please email us at info@coldcreeknaturalfarm.com within 5 days of receiving your order. The email should include your order number and a detailed photo. At the sole discretion of CCNF, we may either replace or refund your order. Please note that the Shipping Cost for your order is non-refundable. Please do not send messages on social media as these are easily missed due to volume and algorithmic filtering (and we want you to know that as a customer of CCNF you are much more important to us than Instagram!).

While your satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us, we cannot be held responsible for improper storage once you receive your tubers, growing conditions, neglect, pest damage, rot after planting, and so forth. Similarly, if you decide to pot up your tubers for cuttings or otherwise, we cannot be held responsible for rot, desiccation, mold, plant failure, and so forth (these are advanced growing techniques and a lot can go wrong, even for experienced growers and perfectly-viable tubers).

Although we do our best to provide you with the healthiest true varieties, mistakes can happen. If for some reason, the tubers you order are not what you expected, please email us at info@coldcreeknaturalfarm.com by the third week of September. The email should include your order number and a photo. At the sole discretion of Cold Creek Natural Farm, we may replace or refund your order (please do not send messages on social media). Please note that the Shipping Cost for your order is non-refundable. 

As previously noted above, our tubers are inspected and approved before storage and shipping. We follow recommendations of culling the field of any suspicious plants during the growing season, randomly test, sanitize between tools, and use several organic biological methods to keep pests controlled. We do everything within our power to ensure healthy stock. That said, by purchasing tubers from CCNF, you accept the fact that dahlias sometimes get disease, and that these are not 100% avoidable and/or detectable (as plants can be asymptomatic).


Payment can be made through either PayPal or a major credit card.

Sales Tax

All Texas state residents will be charged sales tax.


We will ship all orders starting in April, weather permitting. We can only ship to the United States (sorry, no international orders at this time). If you have concerns with this shipment timeframe, please do not order, as we are unable to accommodate special requests at this time. Everything is shipped via USPS Priority Mail. Once your order ships, you'll receive a confirmation email with tracking information.

Shipping rates are set by USPS not us at CCNF:
1–4 tubers = $10.40
5–24 tubers = $18.40
25–40 tubers = $24.75

Local friends: Due to logistics, but also personal time constraints, we do not offer farm pickups at this time. (Even mail carriers have a really difficult time finding our farm). Apologies for any inconvenience, but we will send out a newsletter if this changes.

Preparing for the Sale

You can preview varieties here. All varieties will be marked as out of stock until the sale. Please note that final varieties and prices are not guaranteed until the site goes live for the sale, but we'll do our best to keep it as accurate and as up-to-date as possible. The morning of the sale, the page will go blank until the sale goes live (this is so we can update the website for the sale). If for some reason there a storage issue, we will automatically refund the variety from your order.

Dahlia Care Tips

If you are unable to plant right away, be sure to have a plan for storing your tubers. Storage can be tricky business and entirely dependent on your unique climate and location. Here at the farm, we store our dahlia tubers in vermiculite in our pantry (a cool, dark place between 45–55 degrees F works well.) Be sure to check often for rot and/or desiccation as dahlia tubers are sensitive to moisture and are prone to rot in wet conditions.

Plant dahlia tubers in the spring, after all danger of frost has passed. If there is excessive rain in the forecast, wait until this passes, as dahlia tubers are prone to rot in super wet conditions.

Choose a location with well-draining soil (pH 6.5–7.0) and full sun (at least 6–8 hours). If you haven’t already, prepare soil with amendments/compost based on soil needs. (But, remember they don't like alot of nitrogen. you'll have a bushy green plant with less flowers.)

Dahlia plants can get quite large and may require staking or support nets. We use T-Posts and twine.

That was a lot, but we want to make sure we cover all the bases.

At the end of the day, we're just a couple of nature lovers with big dreams who love growing healthy beautiful things!
