Creating a beautiful tulip garden is not a simple task. Scores of volunteers and staff, like Ric have already planted 6,000 bulbs and 2,000 bedding plants such as pansies and forget me not. Planting starts with pulling out existing summer garden plants and flowers.
Then we prep the soil, plant bulbs, go back over the planted bulbs and plant bedding plants in the fall and winter. In the spring just before the gardens open volunteers will plant additional pansies and forget me not flowers. Stay tuned for a detailed report on garden design process with lead garden designer Nancy and Keri Mair.
