More than 100 volunteers including students and staff from Royal Dutch Airlines (KLM) spent Tuesday afternoon planting tulips in Gardens by the Bay.
From April 29 to May 20, the Flower Dome will be showcasing "Tulipmania", where 20,000 tulip bulbs in a myriad of colours will be on display. These bulbs have been flown in from the Netherlands.
Other activities that will be held in conjunction with the tulip event include cultural activities such as Dutch cheese-tasting and music. Gardens by the Bay changes it displays monthly.
Said Dr Kiat W. Tan, chief executive officer of Gardens by the Bay, Dr Kiat W. Tan: "Tulipmania takes visitors on a botanical journey into the world of tulips, right here in the tropics."
