Journey North International Tulip Study
How to Participate

Before Planting Your Garden
Register for Journey North
Registration is free, but only registered schools may report news from their gardens.

2. Order Your Tulip Bulbs
All gardens must be planted with Red Emperor Tulip bulbs. This is a scientific experiment, so all Journey North gardens must be planted with the same variety of bulbs! Purchase bulbs in your own community or order from our supplier.

3. Purchase a Tracking Map or Make Your Own
You'll need a map of North America to chart spring's progress across the Northern Hemisphere.

Plant Your Garden
Follow These Planting Instructions
For our experiment to be valid, all gardens must be planted in exactly the same way. (If you're in a southern region (Zones 8-11) read these "Special Instructions for Warm Regions"!)
