Plant Tulips and Track the Seasons
This fall, join students and gardeners across North America in planting a Journey North Tulip Test Garden. This project sparks curiosity and builds inquiry and investigation skills while monitoring seasonal changes in a scientific way.
Fall Planting Season
Gardeners are getting ready to plant their tulips bulbs. Remember to report your fall tulip planting dates to Journey North. Next spring, when plants emerge and bloom, gardeners also will report their observations and data of each of these phenological events to Journey North.
Tulip Test Garden Signs
Thanks to contributions from the Friends of the University of Wisconsin Arboretum, Journey North now has a garden sign for you to print and use in your Tulip Test Garden. We hope these signs help promote the study of seasonal change at your schools and in your communities. If possible, consider including your sign in the photos you take of your fall and spring tulip planting, emergence, and bloom date reporting to Journey North!
