Tulips: Showing Off My Early Spring Beauties

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.

Tulips, Are They Perennial or Not?

Last fall, I showed you how to plant tulips using a cordless drill. I am now preparing a series of articles where I’ll show you how to plant hundreds of tulips in a landscape bed without breaking your back. But before we get all happy in the dirt, here is a common misconception associated with Holland’s greatest export that I thought I’d share with you.

Are Tulips Perennial?

Perennial means, “returns every year,” as opposed to annual, which means it lives one year and dies. (more…)
