The Tulip, Amsterdam’s Most Precious Flower, And Daffodils

The Dutch plant tulips in large fields to obtain tulip bulbs for export. The tulips in the tulip fields are not about the flower, but about the bulbs. The flowers are mown at the end of May after the tulip season so that the power remains in the tulip bulb.

In summer the tulip bulbs are taken out of the ground, cleaned and dried. In late summer the best tulip bulbs are for sale.  The tulips for flower sales grow in greenhouses, where they are protected from the weather.

Daffodils are among the first spring flowers to adorn the landscape with their first yellow spots. With the opening of the Keukenhof, you will be able to find them earlier than the tulip. The natural habitat of wild daffodils is Northwest Africa and Southwest Europe on the Iberian Peninsula. Daffodils and tulips are welcome heralds of spring in most European gardens.

Throughout the year you can see flowers at the tulip auction in Aalsmeer, which is the flower bulb center of Holland. Besides tulips, you will find millions of other flowers and plants of all kinds which are auctioned daily.

Arcen Castle Gardens

For me, one of the most beautiful experiences in the Netherlands was the visit to the castle gardens of Arcen. The romantic Holland fower park is open all year round and is particularly beautiful when the roses bloom (June). Read my article with photo gallery here.

History: Tulip Time In Amsterdam

Although the tulip actually comes from Turkey, Holland is known worldwide for it. The first bulbs reached the country at the end of the 16th century on ships from Constantinople (today Istanbul). In the Bollenstreek the Dutch started cultivating tulips in different colors and shapes. They were especially popular among the upper social classes.

With the increasing popularity of the ornamental plant, new forms of tulip trade were added. In the mid-1630s the price rose massively and speculators entered the market. Investors sold land and houses to invest in tulip bulbs. A tulip like “Semper Augustus” or “Viceroy” cost thousands of guilders. The so-called wind trade collapsed in 1637 and caused massive losses. In the case of irrational financial developments, one still speaks today of Tulipomania or tulip madness.

Best Time To Plant Tulips

Most likely you will buy tulip bulbs in Holland during your trip. Normally you buy tulip bulbs in late summer and plant them in autumn. But can you plant tulip bulbs in spring? Yes, you can. If you want to plant tulip bulbs in spring, you have to consider the following:

In spring the bulb bottom is already swollen. On some bulbs, you can already see the tip of the shoot. The bulbs must, therefore, be planted very carefully so as not to damage them.

The soil must, of course, be frost-free! The bulb cannot be pressed into the soil as in autumn. The soil must be carefully excavated and the bulb placed in it.

Tulip Bulbs From Holland Online

If you want to buy tulip bulbs, you can order them online. Various companies in the Netherlands have specialized in shipping tulip bulbs. Refrigerated trucks roll along motorways all over Europe and Schiphol Airport transports tulips all over the world.

Confused About Holland Or Netherlands? Where’s Holland?

The Dutch often equate Holland with the Netherlands in their language. Where is Holland? It consists of the provinces of North Holland and South Holland and is part of the Netherlands. Holland borders the Northsea in the west and the IJsselmeer in the east.

The northern border is near the island of Texel and in the south, the delta of the rivers Rhine, Maas and Schelde form a natural border. Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague are all located in Holland. The majority of Holland lies below sea level.
