Dahlias in Santa Cruz
Here at Blackbird Farm we are trying something new for the 2017 growing season. We are concentrating our efforts on new dahlia varieties. Organic dahlia seeds collected from our farm will be sprouted with the intention of finding new varieties for the dahlia community.
Along with these efforts, we will be growing dahlias for the local Bay Area dahlia bloom shows in San Leandro, San Francisco and Santa Cruz. These shows run the month of August.
Do you need dahlia blooms for a wedding or event? Our dahlia blooms can be found in August and September at The Flower Shack in Santa Cruz, and Susi's Flowers in Aptos.
Dahlias Grown Organically
We take great care to grow our dahlias organically. We use no artificial pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. We plant a cover crop each winter to renew our soil and use natural soil amendments and mulch. This care creates award-winning blooms.
