Tulips: Showing Off My Early Spring Beauties

By Allyn Paul, filed under Planting Flower Bulbs.

Alright ya’ll, here I have to show off my early spring tulips if you will allow me. I have been telling you guys to get your tulips planted (like since last August) and if this video and picture(s) doesn’t convince you to plant tulips this coming fall, I don’t know what will.

Honestly folks, these beautiful flowers will give you a nice little boost in the early spring (ya know, like make you just feel good about life in general) and if you are anything like me, you will drink a beer with your little Dutch ladies. Yep, I am a total ate-up weirdo! I love lawns and landscape fo’ sho’ ! …and I love my tulips.


You know the best part though?… these are just the early spring blooming tulips (today is April 4 and I am in NW Indiana) but I still have 6 more varieties (3 mid spring and 3 late spring bloomers) coming up! Yeah baby!

If you are looking at this thru an email newsletter, you need to click the title of the article and come to the blog to see my short little music vid. Please check it out! If anything, it will help to instill the fact that I am a really passionate lawn and landscape guy who seriously needs some help! :) Let me know what you think of music selection! Ha! LOL


Here is the link to the article I wrote last fall showing you how to plant tulips. In addition, you may want to look at my vid about protecting tulips from early spring frost damage. We gotta watch out for our babes! (I have switched to a new video host because I got some complaints that the other one I used was delivering choppy feed…hopefully this will be better for you guys)

Finally, you should order your tulips early for 2009. Seriously, over at Breck’s Bulbs (where I get mine) you can order now for Fall time delivery! It’s cool because they will ship them to you at the right time for you to get em’ in the ground. They remember so you don’t have to. Order from Breck Here. Best quality, seriously.

    I received some tulips for valentines day this year (purple). I planted the bulbs outside after they started to ‘die’. I noticed you said to plant them in fall. Do you think they will bloom next year?

    PS. Yours are beautiful!

    I got some [purple] Tulips for Valentines day and planted them outside in late Feb. Do you think they will come back out next Spring? I’m in Zone 8a.

    I don’t think the tulips will make it all summer being transplanted in Feb like that, but it can’t hurt to try.
