Spring 2007 Bulb Display

Horticulture Research Center, So. Burlington, VT
Dr. Leonard Perry, Extension Professor

They following bulbs have been planted among the shrub rose display garden, and are labeled. Bloom is from early April to late May, best time depending on the season. Most tulips are treated as annuals, and so were only in bloom the spring following their planting.

Appreciation is expressed to Dutch Gardens (Burlington, VT) for donating the majority of bulbs, and to the Dutch Bulb Institute (DBI under notes) for the remainder. Thanks to Mary Mazur for maintenance and coordinating volunteer help, and to the Friends of the Hort Farm and Master Gardeners for assistance. Additional funding for mulch has been supplied by Friends of the Hort Farm, and for supplies by New England Grows--a conference serving the professional green industry of New England.
