Planting Tulip Bulbs

My farm is buzzing with activity this fall - dinner gatherings, magazine shoots, and lots of autumn chores being done in preparation for the cold days ahead.

My gardeners and outdoor grounds crew have also been hard at work planting all the spring flowering bulbs I ordered. It’s so exciting to see the swaths of color in the garden beds after a cold, dreary winter. Every year, I order thousands of bulbs to add to my landscape. This season, I also decided to create a cutting garden of tulips on the far side of my main greenhouse behind my berry bushes. I ordered bulbs from Brent and Becky’s Bulbs, Van Engelen, McClure and Zimmerman and Old House Gardens Heirloom Bulbs - and, in all different types, including parrot and double flowered tulips. They will look marvelous come spring.
