About Us

If you want to contact Emily in a hurry, the best way is by phone; (603) 763-4210.  Be warned that with 3 kids, two jobs, and a burgeoning dahlia business, the answering machine is mom's best friend.  But messages are checked regularly.  Naptime is daily from 3-4:30pm.  Don't expect to get through during naptime or if the sun is shining.

To ask a dahlia question, you may send email to bydesigndahlias@gmail.com  PLEASE do not try to order dahlias using this email, or over the phone. The Online Store will open in March or April, and you are welcome to purchase as many tubers or flowers as you like there, but I'm afraid my "customer service staff" has been reclassified as tuber sorting staff, digging and planting staff, and shipping and handling, and they (I) have my hands full.  I can't place orders for you.

The Online Store will process your order, keep track of my inventory, and even arrange a pick-up time based on my calendar.  Once your order is placed, if you chose the pick-up option, you will receive an email with a link; https://squareup.com/appointments/book/PMZRGHXH64YTE   to make an appointment for your pick-up, and directions to the farm.  When you arrive at your scheduled time, you order will be in the farm stand at the end of the driveway.  Sometimes I am out in the garden at this time, and available to answer questions.

If you would like to help with cutting or digging dahlias, you may send me email to that effect, and I will put you on the list to be alerted when it is time to start digging.  At that point you will be invited to sign up for a time on my appointment calendar:
Keep an eye out for the announcement of the DIGGING UP DAHLIAS WORKSHOP.  Coming to a farm near you; 2 weeks after the first killing frost.
Hopefully, that's November this year!!  We'll see.

I give a GREAT talk on growing dahlias with lots of colorful slides and piles of information.  Reach me at the email address above to book the talk.
