15 lakh flowers have been planted this year, out of which only 25% were in full bloom in March due to the cold weather. The rest are expected to start blossoming in April once temperatures improve.

The garden is built on a sloping ground in a terraced fashion consisting of seven terraces. Apart from tulips, many other species of flowers like hyacinths, daffodils and ranunculus can be spotted here.
