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.
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
This photo shows the tulips as they looked on May 22, featuring a Washington Bulb Co./RoozenGaarde field. As you can see, the tulips are NOT blooming. Right now the greenery is left on so the bulb will continue to grow and be ready to harvest later on during the summer. Look for a picture of dirt this summer and planting in the fall. Tulips will bloom again next spring. We will once again publish photos showing the current status of the tulips once they begin to grow in the spring of 2018!
