Despite the fast pace of life, changing architecture and active development of Tambov, the town still has green oases of parks and public gardens that decorate numerous flower beds, hard landscaping and fountains. Every spring green corners of Tambov are carpeted with thousands of tulips.
Dozens of agronomists and designers work hard every year so that more than a million of flowers could bloom in Tambov flower beds in May. Every autumn thousands of tulip bulbs are delivered to Tambov. Designers develop intricate patterns that are brought to life by planting workers. The plants are picked by their shape, height, color range and blooming period.
If the weather conditions allow, mass tulip blossom starts at the end of April or beginning of May and lasts for about two weeks. The main tulip flower beds are situated in Petrov Public Garden, Oktyabrsky Public Garden, Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya Public Garden, Victory Park, the Public Garden in Lenin Square, Sobornaya Square and near “Tambov kolkhoznik“ monument.
