In the beginning of our dahlia days,

we had grown and wasted the entire summer on "blind tubers," only to be met with heartache.

It is our promise to do our utmost in making sure you do not relive our experience.

Each of our tubers are hand-dug and processed. Tuber sizes varies - even within the same cultivar.

At time of your purchase, each tuber is individually checked to ensure they are viable

with visible eyes/bumps/nods prior to shipping.

Please become familiar with the enclosed care sheets.

We've done our due diligence & can make no explicit guarantees

or allowances for circumstances over which we have no control.

Bad weather, bad timing, bad luck & basic human incompetence

can all lead to unanticipated and unsatisfactory results.

Mother Nature does not guarantee perfection, and neither can we.

We've been so fortunate to have the guidance of seasoned growers, breeders, hybridizers and dahlia lovers showing us the ropes of growing this beautiful genre of Mother Earth. Currently, there are 42 recognized species of dahlias, plus several subspecies.

The genetic potential of dahlias appears to be simply inexhaustible.

We do our utmost in researching, verifying, describing and capturing the varieties from our own field blooms

and are, by no means, "Dahlia Varieties Experts".

By purchasing from us, you agree to hold us harmless to "True to variety". 

We are a micro family farm with a focus on varieties, so our quantities are very limited. If it's a "MUST HAVE" variety, kindly consider sourcing from a larger scale grower. As with all of mother nature’s *products*, your order is not a guarantee.

We rather send you healthy, true to variety, tubers that we would be proud to grow in our own garden than to “check-off your order”, fingers and toes crossed that there will be no “CROP FAILURE” during over-winterizing resulting in a refund.


However, if you remain convinced that the viability of the seeds or tubers you planted

were somehow defective and that no honest explanation for the problem can be ascertained,

please reach out to us at

In the event that we accept your cancellation request as a courtesy,

a restocking fee of 15% will apply to all non-cash transactions and 10% to all cash transactions. 

Jess's Dahlia Garden is a registered nursery retailer in the State of Washington and tubers will ship with the State of Washington Department of Agriculture (WSDA) Plant Services Program endorsement in compliance with the WA State requirements. 

Jess's Dahlia Garden reserves the “Right To Refuse Service” to anyone.
