June’s Tulips for Trees fundraiser brought in almost $2,500 for the Town Tree Fund. The bulbs were sold for $3 per dozen.

In a media release, Lord Mayor Betty Disero thanked the NOTL Horticultural Society and Communities in Bloom Committee for their work in helping run the fundraiser.

The bulbs are planted each fall for the following spring season and are pulled out when then tulips are done blooming and the annual floral displays are installed. Tulips for Trees has been raising money for the tree fund since 2015.

“Have a great summer and don’t forget, keep those bulbs in a cool dry space over the summer, and put them in the ground by Thanksgiving! I cannot wait to see everyone’s beautiful gardens next spring, filled with colourful tulips,” Disero said.
