Dahlia Tuber Shipping Policy


Welcome to Little Bit Farm’s tuber sale beginning on January 18, 2023!

The tubers are sold as a single tuber with a visible eye. We do not sell tuber clumps. We pre-sprout the tubers in the spring before shipping.

There are no pre-orders. Tubers will be shipped in the order they are received. They will ship in April and May depending on where you live.

There is one local pickup date at the farm on Saturday, May 6, 2023 from 9am to 12pm. We are a small farm and May is a busy month for us so we kindly ask that you pickup during this date and time. There are no exceptions for this policy.


We ship our tubers within the continental US via USPS Priority Mail in flat rate boxes. The tubers are packed with vermiculite and labeled in a bag. These rates may change depending on post office rates. 

1-6 tubers, $10.40 small flat rate box.

7-30 tubers, $17.05 medium flat rate box.

31 -55 tubers = $22.45 large flat rate box.

If you’d like to purchase 56 or more tubers, please send an email to: littlebitfarmri@gmail.com and we’ll work out the best shipping option.


At this time, Little Bit Farm can only ship to one address per purchase.


We strongly encourage you to purchase your tubers and CSA shares separately. If you choose to purchase everything in one cart, additional shipping or delivery fees may apply.


Our dahlia tubers are packed with care to ensure customer satisfaction and most importantly, to ensure your tubers grow successfully. If there are any issues with your tubers after they arrive, we ask that you notify us within 10 business days.

We aren’t responsible for shipping costs but are able to reimburse the cost of the tuber(s) purchased if there is damage upon arrival.

Please keep stored in vermiculite and store in a dry cool place (a garage or basement is perfect) until you are ready to plant. We aim to send the tubers to arrive at the optimal/safe time to plant outside. We encourage you to plant as soon as you can.

Please wait to plant until the ground is 60. In Rhode Island, our zone is 6b/7a and we wait until early/mid-May to plant. We are not responsible for poor or wet growing conditions or rodent damage that may cause tuber rot and destruction after planting. If we do not hear from you within the 10 days after receiving, we can not offer a refund.

If you choose to cancel your order, you must do so within 30 days of the shipment/pickup date. The cut off date in 2023 is April 8. We appreciate the cooperation as we are a small farm and our inventory might go to waste if you cancel too close to the planting date.


You will receive an email notification the day your order has been shipped with a confirmation of shipment and a tracking number.


We are a small farm and do not charge a sales tax for shipments out of state. If you purchase within the state of Rhode Island, or have your tubers shipped to a Rhode Island address, the sales tax is 7% of the subtotal of tubers purchased.

To customers residing in states other than Rhode Island, please be aware that, if applicable, the taxing authorities in your state may charge you a “use” tax on your out-of-state internet and/or catalog purchases. While it is not the responsibility of littlebitfarmri.com to charge or collect this “use” tax from you at this time, we are alerting our customers regarding this possibility as a courtesy. If you require further information on this issue, we suggest you contact the tax authorities in your state directly.
