Dahlias must be ordered at least 6 weeks prior to your preferred shipping date because we custom grow cuttings specific to your order. Because of our commitment to provide you with healthy, living, dahlia plants, we can only ship within the continental United States.

To order on-line, simply click on the “Add to Cart” button for every dahlia you love. It will automatically calculate the shipping charge based on the number of plants in your order. You can pay by PayPal or Credit Card. There is a minimum shipping charge of $9.50 and a maximum of $15.00

If you live locally and would like to come to Smithfield to pick up your plants, saving shipping charges, you are welcome to do so.  Choose a date at checkout and then select “free local shipping” and you are set.  They will be ready for pickup on the day you chose.

Please let us know if you would accept a substitution in the event that a variety becomes unavailable. Due to the way we grow and take the cuttings we are not often unable to fill an order but occasionally it does happen.  If you do not want substitutions a refund will be sent for any variety not available.


You’ll be asked to choose a shipping date during the checkout process. Choose a shipping date that best suits your area’s weather patterns and planting season. Remember that dahlias cannot be planted outside until there is no risk of frost but can be potted up and grown indoors if need be.

Your order will be packaged carefully, shipped USPS Priority Mail on a Monday, and will arrive at your door a few days from your selected shipping date.
