To celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday, and thanks to Vesey’s Bulbs of PEI, the Canadian Garden Council is giving away 150 gardens, each consisting of 1,000 red and white tulip bulbs. Eligible applicants for this program are communities, public gardens, municipalities, schools, organization, horticultural societies, garden clubs and the like.

The tulip is an international symbol of friendship and of spring. For Canadians, especially, the tulip is a symbol of our national ethos of kindness and friendship, witnessed, in particular, by our providing refuge to the Dutch Royal family during WW11.

This ‘150th Celebration Garden’ program celebrates who we are as Canadians and how recipient communities have played a role in defining, developing and growing Canada’s international reputation as a nation of friends.

The objective is to highlight that gardens are an important part of Canada’s history, culture, development and growth and to provide an opportunit for as many Canadians as possible to take part in the country’s 150th Anniversary celebrations via gardens.
