PRESTON CT IS CLOSED SIGN UP to get ticket alerts for Spring 2024!
May 12th, 2023 It is the last day of the season :(
It was our longest season ever! 5.5 weeks! Opening day was April 5th at our Exeter RI location. Preston CT opened April 19th and Johnston RI opened April 27th. Our Preston CT location lasted 24 days! A bit longer than usual!
Our show garden in Preston CT is still gorgeous!
May 8th, 2023 We have good news! Starting May 9th, each adult will receive 5 extra tulips. So you can pick some extra tulips for mom! Unfortunately we are not going to make it until Mother's Day... We are going to close May 12th. There are still plenty beautiful tulips left for picking, but there are also areas with flowers either bloomed out or picked over. The show garden is still very beautiful!
Pictures below are from Monday may 8th!
May 7th, 2023 We had a lovely weekend. Sunny and colorful! These pictures where taking Sunday morning. With the warmer temperatures, the early & mid bloomers might be bloomed out by Mother's Day. We will assess the field today and plan to add more tickets for Thursday and Friday. We are likely open with Mother's Day weekend , but with a reduced rate, because we anticipate that the field will not be as vibrant anymore upcoming weekend. However, we have many late blooming tulips great for picking and the field should be great for pictures!
May 5, 2023 The field is gorgeous and these tulips are waiting to be picked! We recommend coming in the next 5 days - come pick some tulips early for Mother’s Day!
May 3rd, 2023 We have beautiful cool weather, the tulips love it! We will have a nice long season and might be even open with Mother's Day. We just put tickets on sale until Wednesday May 9th. Tickets for later dates and possibly Mother's Day will go on sale as soon we are confident that the field is looking gorgeous and wow-worthy!
May 1st, 2023 we are super grateful for the sun shining today! The field is gorgeous - the tulips like these cooler temperatures. Wednesday or Thursday we are adding more dates to our ticket system. Initially probably until May 10th. After that we have to asses the field from day to day.
April 28th, 2023 6pm - YOGA IS CANCELLED
April 28th, 2023 Good news! We opened up ticket sales for this weekend at both farms! It looks like during the day it will just drizzle a bit. We don’t expect muddy conditions in fields or in our parking lot.
Did you know that all adult tickets include 10-pick tulips? Additional tulips are $1/stem.
Both farms are gorgeous! Johnston RI is boutique and picturesque & Preston is enormous (and picturesque)

The fields are dry and beautiful! Photos by Meredith Albright who you may have seen in the fields taking photos of tulips and asking you to smile for the camera ;-) If we have heavy rains over this coming weekend, be sure to check back here for any announcements about parking. Our grass parking lots need monitoring for mud and we'll let you know if any changes.
April 24th, 2023 We got a lot more rain than we anticipated yesterday. We are glad the sun is going the shine again today. We will work hard to improve our parking situation. We believe today should not be an issue. The field will be still a bit muddy and slippery
April 23th, 2023 Possible Thunder & Lightning
April 19th, 2023 - Opening day! It is an early season, a week earlier than usually. Our 2023 season has our biggest tulip field ever! 700,000 tulips!! We recommend visiting sooner than later. Tulip season is short, only +\- 2 weeks. We open when at least 30% is in bloom. “Most of them” will never be visible in bloom all at once. Early tulips are being picked and can’t be seen later in season. Late blooming tulips are still green in the beginning. That’s why we always say “Any day we are open is a perfect day!” 🙂 we want to “wow” visitors - and for that reason any time we are open it means you can expect to be wowed! Looking at our reviews we won’t disappoint people very often…
Our Show Garden is back! We planted 75 varieties in raised beds - these tulips are not for picking.
April 16th, 2023 WOW! Our Preston CT field turned color overnight! Two days ago this field was still green… we are opening Wednesday - be ready for a ticket email announcement tomorrow evening!! (tickets are not on sale yet)
