Exercises are described to familiarize horticultural students with the ‘Standard Forcing’ of potted tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, Iris reticulata, Crocus and grape hyacinths as well as cut tulips and daffodils. Procedures are outlined for ‘Special Precooling’ of tulips and Dutch iris as cut flowers. In addition, a simplified list of readily available cultivars of the spring-flowering bulbs covered is provided. The exercises utilize Valentine’s Day as the marketing holiday.
