Spring is in the Air where the Bulbs are Bountiful


Do you know what makes Jacques Amand the Bulb Specialist stand apart from other exhibitors? You can smell the exhibit before you see it! The aroma is simply intoxicating as you walk among modern varieties of traditional tulips, hyacinths, narcissus and crocus, as well as exotic lilies, arisaemas and amaryllis.

Jacques is a master when it comes to flowering bulbs from around the globe. Some species boast recorded histories going back 3,000 years. Knowing the history and geographical origins of bulbs provides clues to how to care for them in the garden and obtain more lasting results.

For me, it’s always fun to observe the horse sculpture featured in the exhibit. It changes every year, so start a Flower Show tradition by having your picture taken in front of it!
