Dahlia Tuber Guarantee
We sell quality single-division tubers, each having at least one viable eye, which is suitable for planting. Our tuber guarantee extends true to name ONLY. If a customer receives a misnamed dahlia we must be notified by September 1st of the year the order was placed. This rarely happens and we apologize in advance, but once it is established that a misnamed dahlia was sent by mistake, we will ship the correctly named dahlia tuber the following growing season. In the case that the misnamed dahlia is no longer grown by Warwick Dahlias, Warwick Dahlias will issue a refund for the original cost of the misnamed dahlia, upon notification of the error.
Dahlia Tuber Refund Policy
We do not issue dahlia tuber refunds for any reason other than damage that may occur to dahlia tubers during shipping. Upon receiving your order inspect it immediately. If dahlia tubers are mishandled or mistreated by the customer when unpacking Warwick Dahlias cannot be held liable for resulting damage caused to them. To report tubers that have been damaged during shipping you must contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) within 3 days of the confirmed delivery date. Warwick Dahlias requests photographs demonstrating the damage of the tubers, with clear markings that it is a Warwick Dahlia tuber. Photos must include close up photos of the product demonstrating the damage. If the photos submitted do not demonstrate the damage a credit will not be issued. Credit is only given for the exact number of items affected. We will not offer refunds unless these conditions are met. We do not refund any electronic processing fees that were attached to the original transacation. Once dahlia tubers are in your possession, we can NOT be held responsible for improper storage, weather & growing conditions, pest damage, or plant performance. If the shipping order address is sent to a mailbox, the 3 day period begins on the confirmation of delivery date. Planting directly into the garden when it’s the correct planting time for your area, will give you the best results.
When a refund is issued for damaged tubers due to shipping errors it will automatically go back to the original form of payment used for the purchase. If we are unable to refund the original credit card an etransfer will be issued. Refunds processed to your credit card can take 7-10 days to be processed by your credit card issuer. Please contact your credit card company if you have questions regarding the processing of your refund once you have received confirmation from us that the refund was processed and initiated.

- c) Lack of a recipient presence at the delivery address at the time of delivery. We highly recommend that you have someone available to receive the order at the time of delivery. Warwick Dahlias must be notified prior to delivery if there is to be no recipient to receive the order.
