It is that time of year when the snow began to melt and all that is brown and gray start to wake up. As the season changes into spring we start to look for the any sign that winter is on its way. For those of us who cannot wait, there is the tulip. The tulip is a favorite for a spring flower. It is sold in groups of 10. Tulips come in a variety of colors. White, light and dark pink, light and dark purple, red, orange, peach, cream , yellow, red, plum, and there are so many variegated colors to name. We sell them as fresh cut flowers, but can be sold as plants. We can put them mixed arrangements or as a specimen arrangement. We tulips arrive they are only about 6-8 inches in length and have a small head. What most people do not know is that Tulips are one of the only flowers that still grow after being cut. Tulips will grow 1/2 inch to an inch a day. They also will grow towards the Sun. I find that if you re-trim the stems every 3 days and give the tulip flower food water you can easily extend the life of your tulips. But be careful of other bulbs. Daffodils and Hyacinth release clear goo from their stems that can clog the stems of the tulip and kill these spring beauties off. So grab yourself a few bunches of tulips and enjoy spring.
