Fall is Here – Plant Your Tulip Test Garden Soon!

September 24, 2020 by Team Journey North

Join participants across North America in planting a Journey North Tulip Test Garden this fall. Next spring, when tulips emerge and bloom, gardeners will report their observations and data.

Plant your bulbs today!

There are now four Tulip Test Gardens planted. Welcome Edmonton, Alberta, Lehi and Orem, Utah, and Farmington, Minnesota gardeners to the Journey North Tulip Test Garden project!
