April showers bring May flowers. And in this case, beautiful tulips at Dilworth Park.
The tulip is one of the most colorful and easiest spring flowers to grow, according to Longfield Gardens, a flower bulb wholesaler in Lakewood, N.J.
To ensure gardening success, start with a large, firm bulb. Plant them in mid- to late-fall in sun, shade, or even a box. The soil should be well-drained and not soggy. The plant will be dormant until spring.
