After several years in Johnston, Rhode Island the Wicked Tulips Flower Farm is getting a brand new location for next spring.

People have been flocking to the Wicked Tulips Flower Farm on Brown Ave in Johnston for years. But when spring 2020 rolls around, the flowers will be blooming somewhere else.

The owners of Wicked Tulips told fans over the summer that they planned to leave Johnston for a bigger farm, sighting the need for fresh soil after so many years of planting tulips in the same spot and wanting a bigger space as their popularity grows.

At first they thought Charlestown was going to be their new home, but this week announced that spring 2020 would bring Wicked Tulips to Schartner Farms in Exeter, Rhode Island.

Apparently Charlestown has a pretty bad reputation for being difficult and not open to new businesses. And a new town ordinance that would ban mass gatherings could be passed any day now.

So to be safe, Wicked Tulips found another new home and Exeter is it.

Personally I love this announcement.

My in-laws live very close to the new farm and the land there has had nothing on it for years.

To hear that the folks behind Wicked Tulips have planted one million bulbs on Schartner Farm is fantastic.

It'll bring some serious beauty and a lot of tourists next spring, which should be good news.

And if you're worried about the drive, Wicked Tulips Exeter location is just about equal driving distance from New Bedford as the Johnston location, so your road trip for amazing flowers around Mother's Day stays the same.
