  • Dahlias for Figs?

    ​​​​I would love to trade dahlias for some of the figs in my wish : Smith, Craven's Craving, Black Madeira KK, CLBC, Black Tuscan, Black Zadar, I-258, Violetta, Longue d'Aout, Honey Plum, LSU Scott's Black

    I am newer to figs, but I've been growing Dahlia's for a couple years and mine are ready to divide this winter. I got them from a friend who grows and shows them and has won several awards. I don't have names for them. I'm in Seattle, zone 8/8b. These tubers have grown to 6 ft in ground with ample water and 6 hrs of sun. I don't dig them up in winter and we had snow several times last year. I recommend support for them. My current support is blueberry bushes, a fig tree, and a couple of bamboo poles. (The pictures of the larger plants are after I cut a ton of flowers to give to my neighbors.) The White Dahlia bloomed into November when the plant finally froze.

    Please PM me if you're interested. IMG_20190910_150814.jpgIMG_20190910_150613.jpgIMG_20190910_160629.jpgIMG_20190910_151317.jpgIMG_20190910_160959.jpgIMG_20190910_151156.jpg

    My wife loves Dahlias, I’ll have some LSU Scott's Black cutting around first of November if you’re still willing to trade.

            How beautiful! Maybe when my figs get bigger we can trade. Hope you get all the goodies on your wish list. 😃

              Adding a few more colors. I planted these in a different spot that did not get nearly as much water, which I think affected their growth quite a bit when compared to the main ones I posted. I should have at least one to two tubers of each of these colors. Petals of the second and third pictures wrap 360°.

                    Shoot. I missed my USPS deadline. Seems like i can get better rates when I walk in. I'll have everything boxed and ready to go an ship them out Monday after work. I'll send tracking too.
                    Happy Saturday everyone!

                      All packages mailed out last evening via 2-3day priority, but I missed their USPS pick up deadline. They should go out today/ tracking #'s should start working.
