Time to plant my “New Moon” tulips …

Look what I got in the mail today:

new moon tulip bulbs

You may be wondering what the heck that is. Well, they are tulip bulbs … specifically, bulbs for this variety of tulips:

Yep. I am planting New Moon tulip bulbs, and come spring time — my planterbox will look like the cover of the book!

I told you about the tulips earlier this year, when I visited the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival near Woodburn, Oregon. That’s where (and when) I ordered my bulbs for fall planting. But there’s still time if you want to plant your own New Moon garden. Click here to find out about ordering your own bulbs.

  1. That’s so cool! 🙂 If I had any kind of green thumb I might order some.

  2. Thank you so much for the idea. I didn’t realize what they were called. I ordered some for me and my friend for her birthday. I know she will be so excited when she sees them. I had to look on several sites to find them. I think you created a run on tulip bulbs, at least the “Twilight New Moon” kind.

  3. Did your tulips bloom? Mine were beautiful and they lasted a long time. I took several pictures if you would like to see them. My friend’s didn’t do as well. I think she planted them in a spot that was too shady. Thank you so much for the tip. I think I might order more for next year.

    • That’s wonderful! Yes, definitely send us your pics — sara.novelnovice@comcast.net

      I only got one bloom this year, and the red color wasn’t spectacular, so I didn’t take a photo. I think I may have waited too long to plant them — but fingers crossed for next year!
