Tulips Are Better Than None

The tulip tree is one of America's most magnificent deciduous trees, and now you can raise one of your own to grow in your yard with this simple tree-to-be kit. With complete instructions, you get to watch your tree grow all the way from its humble days as a mere seedling. With a little care, in a few months your tree will start to grow in its little clay pot (included), and in little over a year, you can have your tree growing in your yard. Within 10-15 years, your tree will start to yield blooms. Includes just about everything you need - just add water, sunshine and some TLC. This tree is native to the Eastern United States. Made in the USA.

                  I sent this Tulip tree to my cousin and her husband. They recently moved to their first home and I wanted to give them something unique for a housewarming gift. The package arrived to their house on time and had step-by-step instruction on how they should plant the tree. I thought it would be something special for them to look at as they grow into their house. I now want to order one for myself!
