Selected Reports from the Test Garden

Late Planting--Lack of Snow Cover?

  • 04/25/12 Fairlee, Vermont
    We are wondering if the cold temperatures of winter without snow cover affected the blooming of the tulips. On 4/25 only four have bloomed.

  • 04/30/12 Norwich, Vermont
    This year's tulips bloomed several weeks later than those I planted in past years. I didn't plant them until December so wonder if this is the reason.

Kodiak, Alaska Test Garden

  • 04/13: Spotted one tulip bud. Yes! Windy, cold and spotty snow, but one bud.
  • 04/20: Fourteen buds and almost 50 degrees today here in Kodiak Alaska. Spring has arrived we hope.
