The tulip garden map is filling up with the last of the planting reports from warm climate gardeners. Why do they put their bulbs in the refrigerator? How do observing tulip growth and climate change go together? Find out more. And, explore temperatures underground as the tulip bulbs await springtime.

We now have 174 gardens on the map! Students have been busy digging, measuring and planting the bulbs they have come to know so well. Take the Microclimate Challenge: Cause 2 tulip bulbs to bloom as many days apart as possible. And now is the time to explore and design your own tulip experiments. Study the map and find a gardening partner!

Our map shows 17 gardens planted. These gardens are leading the way as many others get ready to dig in for another year of observing tulips and spring. Prepare by getting familiar with the maps that will help you predict spring’s arrival across North America. Investigate a tulip bulb inside and out. Dig up an old bulb to see how new bulbs are grown. Then try your hand at re-creating the tulip bulb life cycle.

What’s it all about? Dig in to the tulip garden study with a tour of gardens, a printable booklet, and a slideshow. Where will you locate your official Journey North garden? Learn more about your own schoolyard. Gather data about temperature, sunlight, slope, and more before you get out the shovel.
