The Bulb Show

Monday, March 1, 2021 - 9:00am to Sunday, March 14, 2021 - 4:00pm

Fitzpatrick Greenhouse at Berkshire Botanical Garden

The Bulb Show

March 1 - 14, 2021

Daily, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Featuring New England favorites and unusual South African bulbs 

Our Fitzpatrick Conservatory is a welcomed harbinger of spring from March 1 to 14 for the Garden’s annual exhibition of New England springtime flowering bulbs and a collection of blooming South African bulbs rarely seen in the northeast.

Visitors to the greenhouse will see an evolving collection of hundreds of blooming plants over a two-week period including traditional New England favorites such as narcissus, tulips and grape hyacinths blooming alongside the Garden’s unique collection of South African bulbs. These are plants whose dormant period coincides with hot, dry summers rather than the cold winters that constitute the dormant period of our hardy bulbs. The environment created in the Fitzpatrick Conservatory mimics the conditions which would bring these bulbs into bloom in their native Cape Province of South Africa, home to some 1,200 species of bulbous plants.

The Bulb Show is the Garden’s annual springtime gift to the community. Come see this unique pairing of flowering bulbs and get a unique glimpse of early spring. Visit often, as different bulbs will be blooming throughout the month!

Admission is free and timed ticketing is required. Click here to plan your visit!
