Welcome to the Hollyhill Dahlias site for the
2019 growing season. We are introducing 10 new varieties and you can see
them on our “New Introductions” page. We have created a web page for each of the introductions that has
several pictures of the new variety. You can access each web page by clicking on the name of the flower
in the New Introductions page or in the price list. We try to allow you to see a larger picture of the flowers
and you can see the larger picture by clicking on just about any picture in the website.
We are not selling very many tubers this year and nearly all of the varieties have very limited numbers for
sale. Because we do not have an exact count of our inventory yet, we are going to list many varieties as
being sold out very quickly. If after we count our inventory, I anticipate selling more inventory and will
announce these additions on Facebook.
We have raised our shipping charges to $9.50 for most orders and $2.75 for an order of one tuber. It may
be cheaper for you to place two or three orders for a single tuber than putting them into one order. It is
hard to match all the situations when using PayPal software.
I do not like large orders and request you limit your order to no more than 3 of any variety. I will give
preference to smaller orders and may refund a large order rather than accepting it. Email me if you
contemplate making a large order.
Every year we are asked about shipping early as in December, January or February. Our tubers are in
storage and inaccessible until our first shipping date the last week of February and we will not ship earlier
than that date. We also get requests to ship after our last shipping date in the first week of April. I am too
busy taking cuttings and getting our gardens ready to ship after that date. Order from someone else if you
need a later shipping date.
As we get older and we are both over 70 years of age, we try to limit the number of dahlias we grow for
sale and just concentrate on breeding new varieties. That means that we may not sell an older variety,
especially those that are available elsewhere. In fact, we do not sell all of the one year old varieties the
second year. For example, we introduced 10 new ones last year and we are only selling 5 of them this
year. So if you want a new one, it would be advisable to buy it the first year. And the price is not going
down much the second year either. We have prepared a list of older varieties that are not for sale and you
can access it by clicking the “Old Hollyhill Varieties” button. I have updated information on most of the
Be sure to check out Margaret’s flower arrangement pictures from the shows in 2018 by clicking the
“Margaret’s Arrangements” button. And I have posted pictures of the 2018 seedlings on the “Seedlings”
page. I will be posting more pictures of flowers that will probably be sold in the future years when I get

2019 Tuber sales in January 2019
We are re-opening the website on 01-10-2019 for sales as we have taken an inventory. It looks like we
did over sell a couple of varieties during the first sale period in December and we apologize for that.
Neither were new introductions. We are trying out the PayPal inventory control system for this second
sales period. If it works well we can leave the website open for a longer period. 01-08-2019
Most tubers are now sold out.
