Get Daffodil Project Daffodils Next Weekend
Distribution of daffodils by the wonderful Daffodil Project started last weekend in Manhattan and Queens, but it's coming to Brooklyn next weekend. The daffodils are free, but they have to be planted in a public place like a tree well. A distribution of free daffodils by New Yorkers for Parks will take place on Saturday, October 27, from 9AM-Noon at the farmer's market at Grand Army Plaza. Now in its fifth year, the Daffodil project was originally created to commemorate September 11. A Dutch bulb supplier, Hans van Waardenburg of B&K Flowerbulbs, is donating 500,000 daffodil bulbs to the project every year. In 2007, an estimated three million daffodils planted by volunteers bloomed, which is a lot of flowers. You can learn more about the Daffodil Project here.
