Big Wide Experiment
From Alaska to North Carolina students have planted tulip gardens using the same scientific protocol. Join them by planting a test garden of your own.
Time for Planting
How will local microclimates in the city and in the country affect when tulips emerge? What will happen if we plant bulbs deeper? Your tulip garden can become a springboard for your questions about planting, climate, and geography.
New Hampshire: “We planted 60 tulip bulbs correctly and 5 wrong to see what will happen.”
Massachusetts: “We planted the tulips in sunny weather. We’re hopeful for spring.”
West Virginia: “Kindergarteners at Shepherdstown planted 100 tulip bulbs. We first explored the inside of a bulb.”
Alaska: “We planted 25 tulips in the rain for the tulip project!”
