A breath of spring is on the way for Hamilton

February 13, 2017 by  

Spring flowers will be arriving early in Hamilton, and the public is invited to come out and get a taste of the sunny days ahead.

The annual Spring Tide Bulb Show will be back for another year. It will feature hundreds of flowering bulbs, and the greenhouse’s turtle and fish ponds, as well as its aviary and children’s area, will be open to the public.

The theme selected for this year is ‘Canada’s 150th Celebration’, and the displays created will include each of the provinces and territories, as well as the Parliament buildings in Ottawa. Those who organize an event like this can make use of the lamination process to protect the signage and any other printed materials they wish to protect in the humid environment of a tropical greenhouse.

There is no cost to browse through the show, but donations of nonperishable food or a monetary contribution for Hamilton Food Share will be appreciated. The organizers for the event noted that this will be the last time the show is held in the Gage Park Tropical House, as it is slated for demolition in the near future with a new facility scheduled to open in 2018.

The Spring Tide Bulb Show will be held from March 10 to 19 in the Gage Park Tropical Greenhouse. Admission is free, and visitors of all ages are welcome. More information is available on the Hamilton Blooms website.
