SRINAGAR: Despite controversies, Floriculture department is keen to develop Tulip Garden as a round-the-year tourist spot to attract more tourists.
Director Floriculture Talat Parvez told Kashmir Reader that the garden will be “branded as an all-season garden”.
“The department is planning to plant other varieties of tulips that can be showcased round the year,” he said.
“There are 20-30 kanals of land available. It can be utilised for the purpose of planting new varieties of flowers,” he said.
Director said the department has not finalised the amount that would be invested on the proposal.
At least, 4,000 tourists have visited the garden since it was thrown open earlier this month, Parvez said.
Tourism director, Mahmood A Shah, said the department would promote the Tulip Garden through audio and visual publicity.
