USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

What's in this Mix?

Our own Tulip Topper Mixture keeps your bulb beds in bloom all summer.

We invented this garden of flower seeds, which is simply a special mix made to scatter over tulips and daffodil bulbs, either after you plant them in the fall, or as they come up in spring. You'll enjoy 12 quick-growing, quick-blooming flowers. (See Flower List below.) It's easy! Here's how it works:

  1. 1. FALL OR SPRING: Plant the seeds. Once your bulbs are planted in fall (or when they're coming up in spring), simply scatter the seed mix over your bulb bed.
  2. 2. SPRING: Bulbs bloom while seeds sprout. While you enjoy your bulb flowers, your "Tulip Topper" seeds will sprout and create a lush green carpet at ground level.
  3. 3. LATE SPRING, SUMMER AND FALL: Bulb flowers fade. Seed begins bloom. By the time your bulb flowers fade, the seedlings have grown up enough to cover the dying-back bulb foliage. (No cleanup!) And very soon after the last bulb flower is gone, the seedlings begin bloom, and don't stop until fall frost!
