Though it was a chilly mid 30's day, it was a good day to plant the tulips I had in the garage refrigerator for the last 10 weeks. Usually I buy them from a big box when they discount them around Thanksgiving weekend since I treat them as annuals in this zone. I try to get several varieties that bloom at different times from April to May. I've never been real successful in doing this so thought I'd try a mail order selection that are said to bloom early, mid, and late spring. In a couple of months I'll take pictures to see if it looks as advertised below.
