Spring has not quite sprung, but that doesn't mean we can't start looking forward to warmer days. One of the first signs that winter is over is the sight of tulips popping up around the snowbanks.
Those little splashes of colour are a true sign that winter is on its way out, and tulip bouquets make great Easter table decorations and Mother's Day presents.
Unfortunately, those little bulbs can run quite expensive, and a bouquet can seem like an impersonal gift. But, what if I told you there was a farm just north of Montreal where you can pick your own?
TL;DR Tulipes.ca is a pick-your-own flower farm in Laval, just north of Montreal. Their picking season starts on the 10th of May. They have planted over 500,000 flowers for you to pick. Not to mention how Instagrammable this flower-picking trip is!
Tulips.ca is the name of a beautiful tulip farm in Laval, just north of Montreal, where you can go and pick your own flowers. I highly recommend bringing a few friends and a nice camera. You can get there using public transit!
The flower farm recommends that you bring a bucket so that you can keep your fresh-cut flowers in water on your way home. They provide everything you need to pick the flowers, and even have a wrapping station.
Last year, they partnered with pinkinthecitycanada to give back to the community: with each tulip picked, the farm gave money to the breast cancer foundation.
They don't have any ticket price information for their 2019 season, which begins May 10th. The farm is open 7 days a week, though it is recommended you buy tickets if you plan on going on the weekend.
Check out their website here for more information.
Spring is really just around the corner! Happy picking, Montreal!
