Squire's donates 230,000 tulips to local communities

Squire’s Garden Centres has donated 230,000 tulip bulbs to local parks, green spaces, schools, hospitals and charities.



The garden centre chain pledged to donate 10 bulbs for every bag of bulbs that customers purchased in September in its ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign.


Local councils, school children and community volunteers joined Squire's staff to plant the bulbs in October.


Deputy chairman Sarah Squire said the company had been overwhelmed by the response to the campaign. “It’s fantastic to be able to give something back to the communities where we are located,” she added.


The donated variety is ‘Tulip tarda’ (RHS AGM), which has clusters of yellow and white fragrant star-shaped flowers.
