of the month
Like a warm gust of wind,
these springtime delights blow away the winter blues.
Sometime after the start of every new year, when those first
sprouts begin peeking through the soil, there’s no doubt that
spring is soon to come. In the meantime, and beyond, give
customers what they long for—a fresh breath of spring—by
providing bold bursts of bulb flowers in your department.
This well-chosen tulip variety, for example, seems to
contain the power of the sun and can brighten even the darkest
days. Gathered en masse, these tulips need little enhancement,
but simple bird silhouettes enliven their clear containers.
