In North Georgia, Tulips and daffodils are the heralds of spring. The bulbs are best planted between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
These spring flowers need to be chilled for 12 to 16 weeks in order to bloom. So by planting them in the fall, they have all winter to chill and are ready to bloom by spring.
There are over 3,000 types of tulips and over 13,000 types of daffodils if you include hybrids. The combinations are limitless meaning your spring garden can be one of a kind. Of course, the more extravagant the flowers the more expensive the bulbs.
Holland is the number one exporter of bulbs, exporting over 9 billion bulbs annually. From double daffodils to black tulips, these Netherland gardeners use science and time honored techniques to create new varieties every year.
