Experts have begun planting tulips in the capital’s flower beds. Deputy Mayor of the capital Pyotr Biryukov reported this to TASS.
“Specialists from the Municipal Economy Complex (MCC) have begun work on planting tulips so that the bulbs have time to take root before the onset of stable negative temperatures. Traditionally, tulips will bloom by the May holidays, in total we will plant about 15 million flowers, the total area of the flower beds will be more than 220 thousand sq. m. They will decorate streets, embankments, squares, squares, parks and public spaces,” said Biryukov, as quoted by the complex’s press service.
As the KGH clarified, several varieties of tulips are traditionally planted in Moscow, including “Strong Gold” with yellow buds in the shape of an elongated glass, crimson-red “Apeldoorn”, white “Royal Virgin” and “Suga Love” with a soft pink hue. After planting, the flower beds will be decorated with multi-colored wood chips, which will help protect the bulbs in case of severe frosts.
