I have ordered Dahlia bulbs from many different sources over the years. Longfield gardens sends the most select tubers out of everyone. Large, firm, vibrant packaged well. Won't order anywhere else!
Randy M. - Marysville, WA - on August 29, 2019
Beautiful varieties one is dinner plate size in a very pale pink, the others have beautiful oranges and yellows and one is a deep purple about 6 inches across. I am very pleased withe these. dahlias.
Margaret - Blue Ridge, GA - on August 29, 2019
Words cannot adequately express the excitement I have had this summer growing Dahlias for the first time! I got perfect bulbs shipped this spring with easy planting and care instructions, and man have they produced! I can't wait to try my hand at more varieties next year! Rebecca's World is the most wonderful ombré of pinks, and my Cafe au Laite's are nothing short of show stoppers.
Jessica A. - Vancouver, WA - on August 28, 2019
My dahlias grew in beautifully! They are healthy and vigorous growers, all the tubers I purchased from Longfield were successful so far.
Janet S. - Riverbank, CA - on August 28, 2019
I ordered enough Dahlias to fill a whole flower bed. They last a long time in a vase and have bloomed nonstop starting in late spring. I'm going into September now!
Karine - Adrian, Michigan - on August 29, 2018
My experience with Longfield Garden Dahlia tubers has been a great one. A few tubers arrived damaged but they replaced them right away. The tubers grew well and have provided me with so much joy. The Labyrinth, Café au Lait, and Lavender Perfection have incredibly large and beautiful blooms. I'm extremely satisfied and I am already making my list for 2019 Dahlia and many more different plants from Longfield Gardens. I was so pleased with their quality that I have already placed a few orders for Tulips and Ranunculus, and other fall-planted bulbs. Thank you Longfield Gardens! I trust this company.
Craig - Normal, IL - on August 28, 2018
I bought a package of three Cafe Au Lait Dahlias for my daughter. Turns out we managed to get four plants out of the tubers we received in the package of three. Thanks, Longfield! They just started to bloom and they're beautiful.
Marta - Aquebogue, NY - on August 23, 2018
They are amazing, huge flowers of different soft creamy lilac hues on the same bush. Very tall plants so make sure to stake them since the stems are a little crunchy and prone to falling over. Perhaps they need some more pinching when starting out. I will try that next year. Will certainly keep growing them.
Renne M. - Pittsford, NY - on August 10, 2017
Cafe Au Lait dahlias were amazing! Huge blooms and tons of them. So nice to have a big showy bloom at the end of the summer through the fall last year. I dug up the tubers and replanted them this spring. Can't wait to see them again!
Cathy H. - Minerva, OH - on August 09, 2017
I like Cafe Au Lait because it can sometimes be a soft cream color or a cream with shades of light pink. Not every bloom is the same.
Michael C. - Hampton Falls, NH - on June 14, 2017
The dahlias were beautiful. They were used in my daughter's wedding in the bouquets and on the tables. They were almost as beautiful as the bride.
KY Dahlia Wedding - KY - on November 14, 2015
My daughter was planning a wedding for the summer of 2015 and we wanted beautiful flowers and did not have a lot of money to spend. After researching for a while I decided to order 10 bags of 3 tubers of 'Cafe Au Lait'. I had them ship the tubers early to Kentucky so I could plant them in pots and then transplant into the ground after the danger of frost so hopefully I could have flowers for a mid July wedding. Soon as the tubers arrived I planted them and waited for them to sprout about three weeks later. Once they sprouted every morning before I would go to work I would carry 30 pots outside so they could receive sun and then in the evening I would carry them back inside. On mothers day my husband and I planted the dahlias and they begin to grow. I cared for the plants as directed and was hoping for flowers for the wedding . About a month before the wedding I started seeing buds and then flowers. Two weeks before the wedding I started taking cut flowers to the florist to use at the wedding. When starting this project my hopes were to get flowers for the bouquets for my daughter and her seven bridesmaids. But, my expectations were exceeded and we not only had flowers for the bouquets but for the reception, cake and other decorations. Thanks to Longfield Gardens and their help, God and answered prayers the flowers were fabulous. I could of not asked for anything more even if I had spent a lot of money on flowers. The joy I received from working with my flowers all summer and then getting to share them with my daughter on her special day was a special feeling. Thanks Longfield Garden for all your support.
