Srinagar: Efforts underway to make 2021 Tulip show a grand affair

The famous tulip garden in Srinagar is gearing up to surprise its visitors during the upcoming tulip show in 2021. As per the plan, 1.5 million Tulip bulbs of 62 varieties will be planted during the said show in the tulip garden. The same was recently announced by the Floriculture department.

Reportedly, 5.3 lakh Tulip bulbs will be imported out of the total number. Further, the garden will also be planted with 20000 Daffodils and 60000 Hyacinths. The information has been revealed by Floriculture Director Farooq Ahmad Rather during a meeting that was chaired by Commissioner/Secretary Floriculture, Gardens & Parks, (FG&P) Department, Sheikh Fayaz Ahmad.

Earlier this year, Asia’s largest tulip garden in Srinagar,
Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden, was in full bloom with more than 1.3 million Tulip bulbs. However, in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent nation-wide lockdown, the garden saw no visitors to appreciate its beauty.

All aspects, with respect to the development of the region, have been taken up in the same meeting.
