Three for Thursday: Tulipa 'Monsella'
This is an unsolicited, unpaid, unequivocally enthusiastic shout out to Brent and Becky Heath of Brent and Becky's Bulbs. Envious of my bulb-growing fellow bloggers, and determined to have some bulbular beauty for myself, I placed an order with them in December for pre-chilled tulips. Although this winter's weather has certainly given them more chill time than in other years, it's still necessary for us to refrigerate tulip bulbs for 6 to 8 weeks prior to planting them. Since I was late in realizing just how necessary tulips were to my continued happiness and well-being, I was indeed fortunate that Brent and Becky had some beautiful tulips chilling out in their refrigerators, just waiting for me to summon them to my corner of Katy. Emboldened by my success, I'll be ordering a LOT more from them this coming fall/winter!
