Nine lakh tulips will be planted this year, almost double the number of tulips planted in Delhi in the winters of 2023 (five lakh) and almost six times the number planted in 2022 (1.5 lakh tulips), they added.

“The increase in plantation of Tulips and other flowers across the city is in line with Delhi Lt Governor VK Saxena’s aim and the emphasis given on turning the National Capital into a ‘City of Flowers’.

“In a meeting chaired by Saxena yesterday, a blueprint was prepared for sourcing and plantation of Tulips in the upcoming flowering season. The meeting was attended by the horticulture departments of various civic and government agencies,” the official said.

In the meeting, LG was informed that the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) would procure 3.25 lakh Tulips while the DDA (Delhi Development Authority) will procure four lakh tulips this year, he said.
