Keukenhof, the best day out among the flowers!

Posted by on May 30, 2015

There are more than 7 million bulbs in bloom this spring, with a total of 800 varieties of tulips. A unique and unforgettable experience! The spacious 32 hectares cover  spectacular flower shows, surprising inspirational gardens, unique artwork and wonderful events.

In the Historical Garden the tulips themselves tell the development of 400 years of tulip growth and cultivation in the Netherlands. The reproduction of the Clusius garden, planted with tulips including varieties which have been cultivated for four centuries, and which would have been familiar to Clusius. It was thanks to him that the tulip became such an icon of the Netherlands.

This year, Keukenhof’s Innovation garden provided  a sneak preview into upcoming novelties created by the Dutch bulb growers. Surprising bulb flowers with special shapes and unique colour combinations. These bulb flowers are the result of a long cultivation process.

One of our members, Wendy Dain was fortunate to have had the opportunity to visit this remarkable garden this year.  To view her experience log on to the link below – it may take a little time to load but the waiting is so worthwhile!  Enjoy.
