Two ways to say “Happy Birth­day Canada” in red and white with 150th Cel­e­bra­tion Gar­dens

Alberta Gardener Magazine - - Local Dirt -

Cel­e­brate Canada’s 150th an­niver­sary next year with a stun­ning dis­play of red and white tulips, the in­ter­na­tional sym­bol of friend­ship and an en­dur­ing sym­bol of our na­tional ethos of kind­ness and hos­pi­tal­ity.

There’s no bet­ter way to say 'Happy Birth­day' to Our Home and Na­tive Land, and the Cana­dian Gar­den Council and Ve­sey’s Bulbs of Prince Ed­ward Is­land want to help make it hap­pen. Com­mu­nity groups are in­vited to ap­ply for a “150th Cel­e­bra­tion Gar­den” of red and white tulips, and home­own­ers are in­vited to pur­chase their own scaled down ver­sion for their gar­dens.

Com­mu­nity Groups such as pub­lic gar­dens, mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties, schools, ser­vice or­ga­ni­za­tions, hor­ti­cul­tural so­ci­eties and gar­den clubs are in­vited to ap­ply for one of only 150 red-and-white Cel­e­bra­tion Gar­dens, each con­tain­ing 1,000 tulip bulbs, to be planted in the fall of this year and bloom in time to say “Happy Birth­day Canada” in the spring of 2017. Ap­pli­ca­tions for one of these gar­dens are be­ing ac­cepted on the Canada’s Gar­den Route web­site – www.canadas­gar­den­ Dead­line for ap­pli­ca­tions is Au­gust 8, 2016.

Home Gar­den­ers can join the party with their very own Cel­e­bra­tion Gar­den. Ve­sey’s Bulbs is sell­ing an ex­clu­sive, lim­ited num­ber – only 150 per re­gion – of spe­cial Cel­e­bra­tion Gar­dens for the home gar­dener, each con­tain­ing 75 Red Im­pres­sion and 75 White Hakuun tulip bulbs. Each gar­den comes with an of­fi­cial “150th Cel­e­bra­tion Gar­den” cer­tifi­cate. Or­der now to avoid dis­ap­point­ment. De­tails avail­able at: canadas­gar­den­
