Last fall the Grounds Department planted an additional 10,000 bulbs on top of the bulbs that have been planted over the course of the history of Upper Iowa University. Finally some of the hard work is starting to poke through the mulch. Walking past Alexander-Dickman and Parker Fox you can not miss the beautiful color of green beginning to come up.
Spring Garden October 2012
We were very selective when purchasing our bulbs last fall, as we wanted to create a “show”. Our earliest flowers should start to show soon, with our selection of Glory of the Snow, followed by some early to late bloom Tulips, Grape Hyacinth, and Allium Caeruleum. All of our bulbs were imported directly from Holland.
On Fayette Appreciation Day, volunteers will help plant 4,000 annuals this spring.
And lastly 30 light poles around campus will wear two hanging baskets.
