A Windy Day at Tulip Town

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 7 May 2019 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I know of two growers in the Skagit Valley that have display gardens. One is Tulip Town and the other RoozenGaarde (Washington Bulb Company). I visited both this year and found the display gardens and adjacent fields quite colorful. The Tulip Festival goes on for the month of April. I read that the peak blooming would be about mid-month so, that's when I went.

Denny mentioned this as something to do while we were in Washington last month, but the weather was so wet that we didn't try it. Beautiful. I'm sorry we missed it.
