In that case you will be notified of the shortage and your purchase will be refunded, we will not substitute unless we are expressly asked to do so by the customer.

Why does shipping show up when I place dahlia tubers in my cart?  Dahlia tubers when placed into a cart will default to a shipping option.  To change this, click on the pick up item option, found under each of the dahlia tubers you’ve put into your cart. This can be found on the bottom of your checkout page.

What if I want to have my dahlia tubers shipped but also want to pick up an item? Reminder-We only ship dahlia tubers. We recommend to place two orders, one for your dahlia tuber selections which you can set to a shipping option. Your second order would be for your roses or peonies selections. Our system will automatically set those items for pickup. 

Can I pickup my order?  Yes pick up at the Warwick Flower Farm 1672 Constitution Rd., Black Creek. We have set dates and times for order pickup, which will be posted here on the site and on our social media platforms.

What is your dahlia tuber guarantee?  We do our best to provide high quality disease-free, true to type dahlia tubers.  Each dahlia tuber will have at least one viable eye and is suitable for planting.  Once you receive your dahlia tubers we can not guarantee them any further.  It is your responsibility to give them the care they deserve to grow and thrive.

What type of payment do you offer? We use GPay (more familiar term square payment). Please note, we do not keep any of our customers personal information on our web site. Click here for our privacy page.

How do online sales work?  It is possible to have items in a cart and once you proceed to payment that you may get a notice that an item is not available, this is because items placed in the cart are not reserved until payment is actually received. 

Why aren’t all the dahlias showing up when you click a certain category, for eg. White, it shows 15 different white dahlias, but only 9 show up?  Once a dahlia has sold out it no longer shows up on the page, however the system remembers that we had 15 white dahlias for sale, but it will only show 9 of the dahlias that are still available to purchase.

Why does the inventory of dahlias change? Sometimes customers cancel orders and those dahlia then go back into circulation for sales. We also sell dahlia tubers off site, so inventory will reflect changes that occur because of that.

What is your peony or rose guarantee?  We guarantee that the potted rose or peony will be true to name.
