The weather in Holland has been colder than usual for the last few weeks. This has caused a slight delay of about a week in the blooming of the flowers. There is also more clarity on the impact of the corona measures on the tulip season 2021. Many tulip activities may not start on 20 March. We hope that from April more will be possible.
Due to the corona measures, tulip activities are not allowed to open yet. Read all about the impact of the corona measures here.
Current state of the tulip fields in Holland
The flower fields in Holland are getting more and more colourful. At the moment, it is mainly green of the leaves and yellow of the daffodils. The tulips are really waiting for warmer weather. Because of this, the tulips will probably bloom a little later than usual.
Weather forecast Holland
The weather forecasts predict slightly warmer weather for the next 2 weeks. The real spring weather is still some time away. We do not expect this weather forecast to accelerate the flowering of the flowers.
Flower Forecast 2021*
Because of colder weather the flower fields are about 1 week later than average growth. This means that from 20 March onwards, it is mainly daffodils that bloom. For tulips and hyacinths we will probably have to wait until April and May.
This means we expect the following blooming periods for the flower fields:
- Crocus – blooming between beginning of March and end of March
- Daffoldils – Daffoldils fields from beginning of March till Mid-April.
- Hyacints – Hyacint flower fields from the end of March till the end of April.
- Tulips – We expect the first tulips to start blooming from the beginning of April. Peak blooming will be around Mid-April till the 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.
Flower Map 2021
From the beginning of March till the beginning of May 2021 we will update the Flower Map weekly. Because there are many travel restrictions, the Flower Map will be in Dutch by 2021.
