A tulip field is opening in Old Montreal this spring and visitors can pick their own bouquets. The new Tulipes.ca location on rue de la Commune will have 600,000 multi-coloured flowers. It joins the enterprise's popular existing fields in Laval and Boucherville.

But unlike the suburban fields, the flowers in Old Montreal aren't grown on-site. Instead, Tulipes.ca has been cultivating bulbs in greenhouses and preparing to transport them to the city.

Organizers told MTL Blog that because of their sheltered upbringing, the tulips destined for Montreal will be ready earlier than their Lavallois and Bouchervillois cousins.

The Old Port field opens Saturday, May 7, and could stay open until May 20. It will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day of the week.

Admission to the site is $20 per adult. Customers will pay $2 for every plucked stem.

As of the time of writing, there's not yet an opening date for the Laval and Boucherville fields.

There, admission is $10 per adult plus $1.50 for every flower. There are also some packages available:

  • $25.95 for one admission ticket and 12 tulips,
  • $49.95 for two admission tickets and 24 tulips,
  • and $89.95 for four admission tickets and 48 tulips.
Tickets are now on sale on the Tulipes.ca website.
