Discoveries in the tulip garden continue to excite students across the hemisphere. What are you learning in the Test Garden?

"Tulips had emerged but not yet bloomed when we were hit with a freak snowstorm. Despite that they are blooming now that the snow has gone," wrote Mary-Jane on April 22nd from Cambridge, Ontario.

"Finally tulips are emerging. It has been a cold and wet spring so far. When we had warmth (+60°F) the tulips jumped out!" exclaimed Karen from Cooper, Maine on April 23rd.

"Our Journey North Garden is in full bloom! One-third have bloomed and the others are almost ready," Nikki shared from Rapelje, Montana on April 21st.

"At last our tulips have 90% emerged! From 5mm till 15mm," reported Elena on April 13th.
