While Northeast Ohio Preps for Winter, Cleveland Botanical Garden Thinks Spring

It’s never too soon to start thinking about the return of spring and what stunning colors you’d like to see popping up in your garden next year. Despite unseasonably cold temperatures of late, Cleveland Botanical Garden is focused on tulips and other spring-blooming beauties that will fill its grounds come spring 2014.

Garden horticulturists and volunteers are planting more than 30,000 bulbs this week for staggered blooming next spring and summer. Garden members, guests and members of the media are invited to sneak a peek of the annual bulb planting from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm and 1:30 – 3:30 pm on Tuesday, October 29.

Also, the Garden offers a S-HORT Course in “Bulb Container Planting” with the HORTiculture staff from 10:30 am – noon on Saturday, November 2. Participants will tour the Garden’s installation of 30,000 bulbs and then learn how to plant a container garden of sequentially blooming bulbs to enjoy at home all next year.

The Bulb Container Planting course is $25 per Garden member and $40 per non-member and includes all planting supplies, bulbs, Garden admission and parking. Please register in advance at or by calling 216-721-1600 ext. 100.
Cleveland Botanical Garden, located at 11030 East Boulevard in Cleveland’s University Circle cultural district, is an ever-changing urban escape where you find enrichment and inspiration. Admission is $9.50 for adults, $4 for kids ages 3-12 and free for Garden members and children under 3.


Cleveland Botanical Garden receives public support through Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
