What do you get when you mix
over 8 million flowering
bulbs with the plant know-how of the
Dutch? You get one of the most breathtaking displays you are
likely to see anywhere on earth!
We have visited in April and,
in another year, in May. Both visits were fantastic, however,
the peak of the garden is probably more in the April range.
They close down about the third week of May so that is the end
of the season as far as they are concerned.
To keep the awesome display
fresh, gardeners are always scurrying around deadhead flowers
the moment a single petal drops. They also have plenty of
replacement plants in the greenhouses so, if a bunch of tulips
get stomped by a mesmerized visitor, they can simple replace
the damaged plants. Dutch precision and organization are at
their peak in this garden. Wow!
