BOSTON (WBZNewsRadio) - The Boston Parks and Recreational Department has launched it's annual initiative to beautify the city by planting daffodils through out the city. They'll be distributing 15,000 bulbs for the public to plant.

Ryan woods is the Boston Parks and Rec. Commissioner and said so far this year, 130 community groups have signed up to plant what he refers to as a "sea of yellow" across the city.

“The great thing about daffodils, they come back every spring. So for the past 12 years we’ve been planting daffodils and we keep adding on." Woods said.

So where exactly does one plant a daffodil bulb?

"Not in your front yard or on private property," Woods told WBZ's Karyn Regal, "In front of a library, in front of a community center, your local park, traffic aisles, median strips."

Woods says despite having 130 community groups signing up this year, the city needs more help.

"We’d love to get more down in Chinatown, we don’t have a lot of planting locations there, so to get more planting groups there. Also through out Mattapan, Roxbury, East Boston, and in Allston-Brighton, we’re looking for more community groups there to really get that sea of yellow.” He said.

If you'd like to participate in the initiative, you have until September 30th to fill out an application online. The city will let you know if you or your group is selected for planting mid-October. If you're selected, plantings will be held on weekends of October 20th and November 6th.
