Laughing Goat Flower Farm® dahlias are grown chemical-free, in the fertile soil of the Enumclaw plateau. We use organic compost, bone meal, and Sluggo for early season slug management. We have built up our collection of dahlia varieties to be ideal for landscapes or cutting gardens, and are proud to offer disease-free stock.
We are not a large enough farm to offer wholesale to other growers. We appreciate you supporting our hard-work and efforts by purchasing retail from us.
