Our tuber collection are varieties that are great for cut flower production. We want our collection to be special in that way, geared towards flower farmers. If you are growing them for your garden, they will still be beautiful for you. You get long stems of dahlias by cutting long stems. The harder you cut into the plant, the longer the side branches become. We always sing the song "The First Cut is the Deepest" when we are cutting. Enjoy!
