During the 1600s, tulips were so valuable in Holland that their bulbs were worth more than gold. The craze was called tulip mania, or tulipomania. You can find the valuable flowers (and more!) at Ivy Nursery, where readers have been going to outfit their garden for 38 years. At Fifth Season, find rows and rows of gardening (and even home-brewing) supplies.
