The Netherlands has over 10,000,000 hectares of flowering,
the largest flower exporter in the world.
In mid-May, you can experience the beauty
& coloration of nature in the gardens & fields of Dutch Tulips.
Currently more than 100 types of Tulip flowers are classified worldwide.
All types of tulips are resistant to frost and can be planted in autumn,
around October and November,
and use their flowers in the spring.
More than 3 billion bulbs are grown annually in the Netherlands,
more than two thirds of which are exported to other countries,
especially the United States and Germany.

history of Tulips

A usual Dutch icon,
the origins of tulips in Holland practically began elsewhere.
Bought to Holland in 15th century from the Ottoman Empire a vast area of land,
which is now modern-day Turkey,
much of southeast Europe and parts of Russia.
The wet, low-lying conditions of the Netherlands made the perfect growing environment,
and tulip gardens have been cultivated here ever since.
1 of the most famous parts of Dutch tulip history is surely “tulip mania”.
Frequently depicted in still-life paintings of the Dutch Golden Age,
tulips in Holland quickly reached iconic status. Due to the depth of their color,
they were the preferred flower in Europe.

As demand grew, the humble Dutch bulbs were being sold quickly for significant sums.
At the peak of tulip mania,
a single bulb could command more than 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsman!
It wasn’t long before the bubble burst,
leading to what historians now refer to as the first economic bubble in recorded history.
Another fascinating, yet much more sombre,
part of the tulip’s history is set within Hunger Winter (Hongerwinter) of 1944-45.
Food supplies were severely restricted in many parts of German-occupied territory,
which lead to widespread famine. Along with sugar beets,
tulip bulbs were commonly consumed during this dark period of Dutch history.
