The final days for the flowering tulips in 2022 have arrived. If you still want to enjoy the tulips, we advise you to plan your visit this week. Most flowering tulips can be admired in Keukenhof Gardens. The flower park is open till Sunday 15 May 7:30 pm. The tulips in the tulip fields have been removed by the farmers. The farmers remove the flowers from the tulip fields in order to return the energy to the bulb. These bulbs can then grow into the best quality tulip bulbs. This new harvest of tulip bulbs can already be ordered here. They will be delivered in October. Just in time for the planting season.
Current state of the tulip fields in Holland
Most of the tulip fields intended for growing the best quality tulip bulbs have now been headed. In this process, the farmer removes the flower from the stem so that the energy can go back into the tulip bulb. There are still some tulip fields blooming in some places but they can be cut down at any moment.
The tulips at the tulip attractions are not cut, so they are still in bloom. So would you like to enjoy the tulips in bloom in Holland in 2022? Then plan your visit soon: Keukenhof Gardens, Tulip Experience Amsterdam or Tulipfarm De Tulperij.
You can already order the fresh 2022 tulip bulbs. Now that the tulip flower has been cut, the tulip bulb will continue to grow. The first tulip bulbs will be harvested in June. From September, the bulbs are packed and shipped all over the world in October. Just in time for planting in October to December. Order the best quality Dutch tulip bulbs here.
