Dahlias can be purchased as plants or as tubers. You can also get new plants, even new varieties, from your existing plants.
Tubers and plants can be purchased from the Society at its sales and auctions.
Dahlias can be purchased at garden centres and from mail order nurseries. These are usually border and bedding varieties for the garden. Some larger varieties for the cutting garden are also popular.
Buy unusual and show varieties from Society sales and auctions and from specialist breeders and growers - experienced members can guide you to these.
The easiest way to increase the stock of your favourite dahlias is by dividing tubers when the plant is dormant.
You can also clone your favourites by taking cuttings. Many growers prefer to take cuttings as plants propagated this way usually do not degenerate over the years as quickly as those propagated by division.
