Intrigued by the beauty an versatility of the dahlia, I started growing several varieties of this resilient flower in my Portland backyard in 2006. Today, I offer more 200 varieties of dahlias that Portlanders love to buy right from my front doorstep. If you live in Portland, come by 8005 S.E. Mill Street in the Montavilla neighborhood.
Though I continue to grow flowers in my backyard, I also have a one-acre farm in Corbett, Oregon, just south of Portland, as well as one acre in Portland's South Waterfront district. I host an annual Dahlia Fest every September 7-8 and 14-15, where you can stop by and talk to me about growing dahlias and their uses (try thinly sliced raw tubers on salads!).
You can also pick up fresh cut flowers from August till end of November at my self-serve cooler or call ahead for something special (503-771-1199). I will be at Old House Dahlias August through frost on Saturdays and Sundays. My South Waterfront u-cut flower field will be open Fridays and Saturdays from 12:00-5:00 August 24th through November. The field is located in Portland next to the Meriwether Tower on S.W. River Park Way and Curry .
