Lieutenant-Governor V.K. Saxena has directed horticulture divisions of various departments to turn the Capital into “a city of flowers”. Mr. Saxena has asked officials to ensure that the city is adorned with flowering plants throughout the year. He also directed the NDMC to plant five lakh tulips, sourced from Jammu and Kashmir or Himachal Pradesh, in the next season instead of importing them from abroad, officials said on Thursday. Noting that there has been “an extraordinary spring bloom in the city”, Mr. Saxena directed officials to come up with a detailed plan within the next 15 days to ensure the supply of enough flowering plants in the city for the rest of the year.
