Breath of Spring (formerly called Tulip Day) is an Ontario-wide fundraiser that engages a network of volunteers to sell tulips and crispy wave ferns in support of those living with lung disease.

WHY TULIPS?

A perfect harbinger for spring and low fragrance for those with allergies and sensitivities.

Care for your potted tulips: Plenty of light, even direct sunlight. Water plant regularly. Do not let stand in excess water. Do not let soil dry out.
Care for your cut tulips: Fill clean vase with cold water. Position stems around the vase. Keep vase filled with fresh water. Add some flower food.

WHY CRISPY WAVE FERNS?

A study conducted by NASA identified the crispy wave fern as being a plant that is best suited to purifying the air within enclosed areas.

The waviness of the crispy wave fronds increases their actual surface area, which is the number one factor in determining a plant’s oxygen producing capabilities. The thickness and rigidity of the fronds also allow the crispy wave to filter harmful particles such as benzene and formaldehyde from the air to a higher degree than other ferns.

Care for your fern: Low to medium sunlight. Water weekly. Fertilize monthly. That’s it! Will grow endlessly if put in a bigger pot.
