GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM)-The warm weather is bringing earlier blooms and business to Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park.

The park opened some of its outdoor exhibits days ahead of schedule. Meijer Gardens' lead horticulturist says the flowers are a couple weeks early, making it one of the earliest seasons he's seen since the gardens opened.

"Right now, I get tulips, I get daffodils flowering, the weather is great, the water is flowing in the Great Lakes," says lead horticulturist Ian Warnock. "The kids love it and it's good for us."
Warnock is advising gardeners to invest in some type of frost protection for perennials, just in case.
