    It rained today and the tulips are almost in full bloom. Therte are few more in another bed that is not in bloom yet. It has been cool and cloudy so the tulips are a bit slow this year.

    Due to spring conditions this has been a superb year for tulips in our garden.

    Stupid question....will tulips and other spring bulbs re-emerge again next spring, or do you have to plant new ones?

    Most gardeners will suggest that you dig up the bulbs and let them rest before replanting in the fall. My experience has been to let the bulbs stay in the ground and naturalize. With well conditioned soil the bulbs have returned every Spring.

    I leave tulips, daffodils, alium (oinion bulb), crocus, lily, dracunculus vulgaris, iris in their own beds all year around. They multiply and are more splendid each succeeding year. Zone 5B.

    I was at the Park the day before yesterday amd the bin was empty. This is the first time it has been empty when I wanted chips. If I need more urgently, I will buy them, since I can carry half a yard in the box in my van. There is a new place on King George Road towards Cambridge, about a mile from Governors Road on the left. I picked up a quarter of a yard of sand yesterday, and noticed that they had different types of wood chips.

    I know the place you are talking about, I'll check it out over the weekend. I had to pick up a bag for emergency purposes this evening from Nichols
