You Can Get FREE Flowers & Herbs Across Montreal This Weekend

While supplies last on a first-come, first-serve basis.
You Can Get FREE Flowers & Herbs Across Montreal This Weekend

Let's face it: after a long and brutal winter, our patios and backyards could use a little bit of TLC. And those sad, secondhand IKEA chairs aren't gonna cut it on their own. One of the easiest way to add colour to your outdoor space and help the bees is to plant some flowers.

Bonus points if you plant some tomatoes or herbs: not only will your garden smell great, but it will save you some money on produce, too.

Unfortunately, store-bought flowers and plants can be extremely expensive, and it can be hard to justify the cost. Luckily, the city of Montreal has you covered. They will be handing out free vegetation of all sorts this weekend in four locations accross the city.

The city of Montreal will be giving away flowers, herbs, vegetable plants, mulch and compost in an effort to beautify the city's boroughs. This year, the annual event will be taking place on Saturday, May 25.

Giveaways will begin at 9:00 a.m, and the city is encouraging people to arrive early, as people will be served on a first-come, first-serve basis until stocks have run out. Residents must come to the event with a proof of residence.
