Mike "The Seed Man" Lizotte planted 500 mixed Tulips in five separate trenches throughout his yard and gardens. With a little help from his daughter Sadie, he managed to plant all of these bulbs in under two hours.
Mike was extremely happy with the results of his fall trench planting. That spring when the Tulips came up and bloomed, the created an awesome show of color in the front of his home. Neighbors walking by frequently stopped to comment on the gorgeous blooms. Since he planted a variety of Tulip mixtures, he had a nice diversity of shapes, colors, and sizes in his planting. The hundreds of Tulips bulbs planted en masse also made it easy and guilt-free to cut them for impromptu bouquets. Plus, since Mike chose hardy perennial Darwin Tulips, they come back year after year!
