Spring Bulb Show
If you’re traveling with potted spring bulbs, Road Trips Gardeners, bring ‘em along to the spring bulb show and competition set for April 21 and 22, 2012, at Red Butte Gardens at the University of Utah, 300 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City, Utah (map).
An unusual competition, this one requires no registration. Just bring flowering bulbs: narcissi, hyacinths, tulips, and minor bulbs such as galanthus, crocus, muscari, iris reticulata.
However, even if you just want to see other people’s flowers, if you’re wandering Utah this weekend, plan a stop. It’s part of the spring Bulbs & Blooms display, continuing through May 13, 2012. The garden includes 324,000 blooming bulbs: 170,000 daffodils plus a variety of mini bulbs such as crocus and iris.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. each day. Admission is $8 for adults and $6 for children and seniors.
