first signs of spring

Flower Forecast – February 5, 2020 – The first signs of spring

This is our first Flower Forecast for 2020! Until now it has been a mild winter in Holland and we are already seeing the first signs of early spring flowers on the flower fields.

Current state of the flower fields in Holland

Most flower fields are still in hibernation. Because of the mild winter in Holland some early spring flowers can’t wait to start blooming and in some fields the early flowers show the first green leaf.

Weather forecast Holland

The weather for the next 14 days also promises to be mild for this time of the year. If this weather continues we expect an early flowering. This means that many blooming flowers can already be admired from the opening on Saturday 21 March. It is important that it won’t get colder in the end of February and in March.

Flower Forecast 2020*

Because of warm weather the flower fields are about 1 to 2 weeks earlier than average growth. This means we expect the following blooming periods for the flower fields:

  • Crocus – blooming between beginning of March and eind of March
  • Daffoldils – Daffoldils fields from beginning of March till the beginning of April.
  • Hyacints – Hyacint flower fields from Mid March till the end of April.
  • Tulips – We expect the first tulips to start blooming from the end of March. Peak blooming will be around Mid-April till the end of April.

*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.
