A spring bulb question for our Garden Guru

Dear Garden Guru,

When is the best time to plant tulip bulbs in Noe Valley?
— Pat in SF 

Dear Pat,

The best selection of tulip bulbs are available now. We recommend chilling tulip bulbs for 6 weeks prior to planting. It is best to have all bulbs in the ground by Thanksgiving Day.

Bulbs are available at all Sloat Garden Center locations except our Danville, San Rafael and Pierce St (SF) stores.
