The tulips grown in Skagit Valley do not bloom according to a precise calendar and schedule predetermined by humans. Instead, the tulips bloom according to Mother Nature -- their schedule depends on the weather, particularly the weather in late winter/early spring. The tulips and daffodils only bloom once a year. Many thanks to Alaska USA Federal Credit Union
for sponsoring these updates.
We will publish photos here showing the current status of the tulips and daffodils grown here in Skagit Valley -- Washington Bulb Company, Inc./RoozenGaarde plants the fields and the garden RoozenGaarde while Tulip Town plants the field and displays at Tulip Town. For more information on what is grown in the fields, go to www.tulips.com/bloommap
As of April 4, 2020, we have gone to a Virtual 2020 Tulip Festival. The COVID-19 virus has caused necessary restrictions for all of us. Our two two tulip gardens are closed. The fields of tulips are closed to foot or drive by traffic. The photo here shows planted tulips just starting to bloom in downtown Mount Vernon. We will share those pictures as we find them on our walks around the area. And of course as our Bloom Box, brought to you by Shell Puget Sound Refinery, comes into bloom, we will share that as well. Stay home, stay healthy, stay alive. We will also be offering digital images of the gardens as they come into bloom on our Facebook Page.
Check back here for updates as we have more information.
