A first in Quebec – Pick your own Tulips!
Pick your own Tulips – You can choose to wait until the corn or strawberries are ripe before heading to the fields to pick some fresh goods, and that’s still some time away. Or you can choose to be one of the first people in Quebec to ‘tip toe through the tulips’ and actually pick your own flowers – this month.
‘Tulipes.ca’ is the first in Quebec to offer you the unique opportunity. In a large field, not far away for Montrealers (just off Hwy 13 in Laval on Dagenais Blvd. W.), they planted 500,000 multi-coloured tulip bulbs – and they are blooming.
This year’s grand opening season runs from May 18th to June 18th from 9:00am to 7:00pm, rain or shine, 7 days per week – and part of the tulip sales will be donated to ‘Pink In the City’ benefiting the Breast Cancer Clinic at the Royal Victoria Hospital.
It’s a chance for you and your family or with friends to finally get outdoors (after one very long winter!) and enjoy walking through a field of flowers – where the colours and scents should offer a wonderful sensory experience. And you can pick the tulips of your choice for only $1.00 each – far less than the cost at a florist or supermarket stand.
You do not need to bring any tools, but they do recommend bringing your own bucket, as the tulips will need to be kept in water for the drive home. Pre-cut tulips will be also available, as well as a packing station.
*Do note that animals and food are forbidden on the premises – and strollers are not allowed on the tulip field. You are allowed to take pictures and there is even a special section reserved for weddings and special photo shoots – but please call them first for more information.
Tickets are $3.00 for children 5 years old or younger and $8.00 for anyone over 5 years old – and it is recommended you purchase them in advance for Saturdays and Sundays as they are expecting large crowds (if you are unable to make it, you can use the same ticket during the weekdays). Go to their website at: https://tulipes.ca
They are located at 4154 Dagenais Blvd. W., Laval, Quebec H7R 0C2. Parking is available and there are toilets on the premises. You can reach them at 1-833-885-4737 for more information.
