Intrigued by the beauty and 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 three-acre farm in Corbett, Oregon, just east of Portland. I host an annual Dahlia Fest September 6-7 13-14, 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.
