Heavy rain and storms made it look like autumn the last week, but the weather forecast is looking good for the coming week. The flowers love the rain and are ready to bloom more and more. It’s only one week before the Keukenhof Gardenswill open the gates and we are getting a lot of questions about the status of the flower fields and the flowering in Keukenhof.
Current state of the flower fields in Holland
The heavy rain is not fun for people but the flowers love the water. Most of the flower fields are still green but more and more colors are showing up in the Bollenstreek. We have even seen an early tulip fields in bloom near Keukenhof. Below you will see some flower fields around Keukenhof Gardens near Amsterdam. This photo’s where taken on March 14th 2019.
Weather Forecast Holland
The weather forecast predicts more sun and higher temperatures for the coming week. This is very good for the flowers but is also very nice if you are going to visit Keukenhof in the coming days. Make sure to reserve a rental bike at Keukenhof. With sunny weather waiting times can take up to 2 hours for a rental bike.
Flower Forecast 2019*
The blooming of the flower fields is about 1 or 2 weeks earlier than average growth. This means we expect the following blooming periods for the flower fields:
- Crocus – Currently there are some blooming fields till the end of March
- Daffoldils – Currently there are some blooming fields till mid April
- Hyacints – The first hyacint flower fields are starting to bloom. In the coming week we expect to see more hyacint fields in bloom.
- Tulips – The first early tulip field is blooming near Keukenhof. Most of the tulip fields are still waiting and we expect them to bloom from the beginning of April till the end of April / beginning of May.
*We try to predict the flowering of the flowers as well as possible. However, the bloom continues to be influenced by nature. Due to weather conditions the flowering process can be different than what we expect.
Blooming of the flowers at Keukenhof Gardens
The blooming of the flowers at Keukenhof Gardens is a bit different from the blooming of the flower fields. The flowers at the flower garden have been specifically chosen to ensure that blooming flowers can be seen from the opening (21 March) to the closure (19 May) of the park. Also, the tulips are not headed so the tulips can be admired till 19 May in Keukenhof
From next week we will also give you a weekly update of the blooming of the flowers at Keukenhof Gardens. Make sure to follow our social channels for live updates from the Gardens.
