    Where are the crocus and other early bulb fields, like grape hyacinth? I’ve seen tulips many times but would love to see the early bulbs. THanks!

      @Mary Fillmore – If you drive around by bike in the flower area around the town of Lisse, Sassenheim, Noordwijkerhout etc. and you will see daffodils now for sure. Every year they are on a different spot and there is no predefined route you can follow. Just drive around and if you see a yellow field big chance it will be daffodils. For hyacinths it is too early now, they might be blooming at the end of March/ beginning of April. 🙂

    hello, my name is Enrico (i live in naples, italy) and i’d love to see the tulips in april this year! unfortunately i have some things to do so for me the best time would be between the 29 of march and the 12 of april (of course not all these days, just a week between this two dates!). it would be useless to buy my plane tickets, go there and finding out that the tulips didn’t bloom yet… so what should i do? how long should i wait to buy the plane tickets? also because, like last year, the tulips might bloom 1 or 2 weeks before mid-april … thanks 🙂

      Hi Enrico, every year the tulips bloom on a different date. It all depends on the weather during winter and springtime. Last year (2014) we had a extremely early spring with blooming tulips from the 1st week of April and the year before (2013) a extremely late springtime with tulips in the fields from the first week of May. For this year the prediction is that the tulips will have a normal blooming from the 2nd/3rd week of April towards the end of April. It is still a prediction because the temperature in the next weeks can be warmer/ colder than normal and it all changes. I can’t decide for you when you should buy your plane ticket, because I can’t predict precisely when the tulips are in bloom. It is not exact science, it is nature. Sign up for the weekly newsletter and you will receive a weekly tulip update. We can predict 1 to 2 weeks in advance.
