Gibbs Gardens to open Feb. 16

After several cold, rainy weeks of winter weather, Mother Nature decided we all deserved some sunshine—in the form of acres of sunny yellow daffodils. With a little nudging, she convinced acres of Gibbs Gardens daffodils to bloom early this year.

Jim Gibbs, owner and developer of Gibbs Gardens, understands; he will open his prized Daffodil Gardens on Saturday, Feb. 16, for the season.

Gibbs’ Daffodil Gardens—the largest display of daffodils outside of Holland—cover more than 50 acres of hillsides and valleys with 20-plus million daffodils of 100 varieties, creating golden yellow vistas in every direction.

“We add more than 100,000 daffodil bulbs each year,” said Gibbs. “Every year we plant more early, mid-season and late blooming varieties to create a full six weeks of daffodil blossoms in varying sizes and shades of yellow for our visitors—the late bloomers are special for their fragrance. We encourage visitors to come back every two weeks to experience the complete season.” For more information, go to gibbsgardens.com
