    Update 6th March 2017

    All orders made between July 2016 and end March 2017 will be delivered during the period mid-April - end-May 2017.

    For UK delivery, the orders are sent out by 1st Class Post and we will email you on the day of despatch.  

    For Mainland Europe orders, the order will be sent by post and an email will be sent on the day of despatch.

    For some very large orders, other delivery services may be used, but customers will still be notified by email.

    When your despatch email is sent, the order status will change to 'Despatched'

    For customers who have not supplied an email address, no notice will be given.

     

    If you look at your order online and see that the Order Status is Complete, this DOES NOT mean that the order has been sent out.  It just means that it has been checked.

    Once we start despatching the orders in Mid-April, we will update this page weekly to indicate which ranges of orders we expect to despatch in the following weeks, but we do stress that if one or more of the varieties you have ordered is not well rooted enough to travel, we will hold the order back and reveiw it about 10-14 days later.

    If you are going to be away during the period mid-April - end-May 2017 please let us know your away dates so that we can avoid delivery during that period

    We wish you all Good Dahlia Growing for 2017

    from the National Dahlia Collection Team

     

     

     

    Update 10th May 2016

    Orders are being despatched each week day unless stated.

    If you do not receive your order during the week suggested below, it is probably because one or more of your chosen varieties is not yet rooted well enough to travel.  Your order will be re-looked at within 2 weeks.

    Your will receive an email on the day of despatch (unless we have no email address for you!) 

    Your order paperwork is between the cardboard plant divider and the cardboard outer.

    Ordering your Dahlia rooted cuttings
    All orders will be allocated an order number, this provides a useful reference if you have any queries. Also, just before and during our delivery period (April- June) this page will provide information, by order number, of when your cuttings are due to be delivered.

When ordering on the website, it is adviseable to register an account first if you do not have one. This gives you the ability to view your order at any time and complete an incomplete order. Payment will be made by credit/debit card over a secure gateway.

    Ordering by telephone
    You may make an order by telephone on +44 (0) 1736 339276 or +44 (0) 7879 337714. You will be allocated an order number. Payment may be made by credit/debit card over the telephone, confirmation of your payment will be emailed to you.

Our order form enables you to make a payment by cheque. Confirmation will be given once the cheque has been cashed.

    General Information about the delivery of your dahlia cuttings.
    Generally speaking deliveries are processed by order number, in other words, the earlier you ordered, the earlier your delivery. However, plants being plants do not always root at the same speed, so some orders may be held back if one or more of the Dahlias ordered is being particularly slow to root.

    Rooted cuttings are delivered packed securely in a plastic inner within a sturdy cardboard box (or several boxes for larger orders). Each cutting has a 'lollipop' stick which includes the Catalogue number of the cutting. Please note that there is a delivery note inside the delivery box detailing the catalogue number and the name of each of the cuttings.

    All packages are sent by First Class Post, leaving Varfell Farm mid afternoon and usually arriving on your doorstep the next day, or the day after. If you are ordering from outside the UK, i.e. Europe, packages may take a few more days to arrive.

    Like anybody after a long journey, the cuttings would like to be made comfortable as soon as possible and have a nice drink! Please see our Growing Tips page for advice on how they would like to be treated.
