More Tulips Emerging

March 16, 2023 by Team Journey North

Tulip Test Gardens are emerging, and some Journey North gardeners are even reporting first blooms. This spring, report from your garden twice: when tulips emerge and when tulips bloom.

Spring is Almost Here

The spring equinox is just a few days away, on March 20, and tulips are a sure sign that spring is almost here. Spring’s arrival means variable weather across North America, yet no matter rain or shine, tulips bring a smile to all who see them.

Sarah in Amherst, MA: “We planted 12 but see 8 emerging so far. We couldn’t believe they were up since it has snowed a lot in the past week and it was in the 30s the last several days.” (03/06/2023)

Elaine in Swannanoa, NC: “The other tulips will likely bloom within the week as temps are predicted to be in the 60s.” (03/04/2023)

Katie in Locust Valley, NY: “It is a sunny and cold day. Some of our tulips emerged. We noticed they are green and red. The tips are pointy.” (03/08/2023)

Report Your Observations

If you planted a Tulip Test Garden last fall, don’t forget to report twice: when tulips emerge and when tulips bloom.
