Press invitation: Keukenhof has the pleasure of inviting you to the official tulip plant moment on Thursday October 5th 10.45hrs at Keukenhof  –  Holland

On Thursday 5 October the 40 Keukenhof gardeners plant the first spring tulips for the mosaik ‘Romance in Flowers’.

Planting the bulbs emphasises the Autumn planting at Flower Exhibition Keukenhof. The gardeners have just started planting the flower bulbs that in spring will grow into a spectacular display of millions of colorful flowers. The coming spring will see approximately 7 million bulbs planted in the park.
The significance of Keukenhof for tourism in the Netherlands is exceptionally large. Every year 1 million visitors come to Keukenhof from over 100 countries. The bulb sector in general and the tulips and Keukenhof in particular, have become the face of the tourist image of the Netherlands.

We look forward to welcoming you on Tuesday 5th October.
