TulipMania at Garfield Park Conservatory

Tulips in Chicago parkway

Ever wonder what happens to the plants the City plants in gardens and displays after they’ve stopped blooming and get replaced? TulipMania at the Garfield Park Conservatory is a day where tulips are bagged and distributed to Chicago gardeners just like yourself. On Saturday, May 22, 2010 at 9AM the Garfield Park Conservatory will distribute these tulips. Get there early as a line forms and the bags of tulips are exhausted by noon.
I think I’m going to attend because I was awed by the display of color this year’s crop of tulips put on along the lake. I’ve also discovered some of my tulips have a virus and I am going to destroy them so this is a good opportunity to do so for free.

  • What a fabulous idea! I forwarded this announcement to all my Chicago friends. And the Garfield Park Conservatory is the best.

    Hi Daphne,
