Sale Halted while we review inventory and orders. Sorry. We will resume once we are caught up.
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we will not be able to have our annual live sale event at Bachman’s. Instead, we will be selling the tubers online (on this website). Orders will be available for pick up at Bachman’s on Lyndale north parking lot.
Online sales will start on April 4, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. CST and will go through April 10, 2020, until 12:00 a.m. Bookmark this page because it will become the Tuber Sale page when we go live: https://minnesotadahliasociety.org/sale-2/
Pick-up will be at Bachman’s on Lyndale Ave, in the north parking lot on April 18th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Bring a printout of the order emailed to you.

We would like to spread the traffic out to avoid a long line in the morning.
If your last name starts with the letter A – L pick-up from 10:00 am to 11:30 am
If your last name starts with the letter M – Z then please come after 11:30 am.
If you are unable to do the in-person pickup, we are also offering the option to have your order mailed to you. This option will be provided when you checkout.
Below is the list of dahlia tubers that we have ordered from commercial growers across the U.S.
We cannot guarantee that we will receive all varieties on the list as there can be storage failure suffered by the grower or that we will receive all varieties in sufficient numbers.
The American Dahlia Societies online classification guide provides a list of definitions for the abbreviations of forms, color, and sizes. The link to the ADS guide is here https://www.dahlia.org/ocg/. The class numbers listed are the ADS classification numbers used when entering blooms in a show.
We are following all precautions that are recommended to avoid any close contact.
- We will have cars pull up on either side of the tent and keep people loading orders into cars more than 6 feet apart.
- Our volunteers will be wearing gloves and masks.
- Orders were paid online so we don’t need any face to face exchange.
- Just hold your printed invoice up to the window so we can find the matching order.
- We will load your order into your car’s trunk or back seat, just like they do at our grocery store.
- We will take similar precautions when bagging up the orders.
There is also an option to have the package shipped to you; shipping charges will apply.
