Weekly flower update – Week 15
The present status of the flower fields:
The crocus in the fields are done blooming. The daffodils are at peak blooming. The hyacinths are starting to bloom and we have to wait a bit for the tulips. The early tulips are in bloom but there are just a small number of fields. The regular tulips looks very green and the stem with the flower is not showing yet. We need some warmth and sunshine for them to grow.
The present status of the Keukenhof:
The crocus are in bloom, the daffodils are in bloom, the early tulips are in bloom, the hyacinths are slightly starting to bloom and de regular tulips are still very green. Keukenhof blooming is slightly behind the blooming on the fields. (that is normal, it will bloom a bit longer than the flowers in the fields)
The indoor tulip festival is at peak blooming at one side and the other will get there next weekend. The other flower exhibitions looks lovely. Make sure you visit the orchid show and see the lilies and amaryllis at the Willem Alexander pavilion too.
Forecast next week
The weather predictions are a lot better than last week. From tomorrow (Wednesday) the temperature is going up to 18 C on Friday. That is just what the flowers need to get growing and some will bloom too.
For next week we still see the daffodils in the fields and we can see more white, pink and purple colors in the fields of the hyacinths. I don’t expect the regular tulips in the fields will bloom by next weekend, it was too cold for them last week. The tulips are still too green and they need to grow a bit before they can bloom. It all depends what the weather will do this week and next week. As soon as we spot the first regular tulip field in bloom we will let you know.
At the Keukenhof I expect more hyacinths in bloom to give the park more color. Some early tulips are expecting to bloom outside just as more daffodils. When you visit this week make sure you visit the area around the bulb statue (next to the pond) and the indoor exhibitions. And when you get up the windmill you will see the daffodil fields from the air. For updates of previous seasons have a look at our website.
