One of the greatest experiences during spring in Holland is visiting a real tulip farm. You will see the colorful flower fields and meet the farmer. Most farms are not open for visitors but there is a great farm near Keukenhof Gardens that you can visit during tulip season in Amsterdam.
There are two kinds of flower farms in the Netherlands. A farm can grow flower bulbs or the flowers. The first sells the flower bulbs all over the world for gardeners who love to plant flower bulbs and enjoy a colorful garden in spring. The second sells the flowers that can be found in flower shops all over the world.
The flower fields you can enjoy in spring are mostly from farmers that grow flower bulbs. The flowers are not going to a flower shop at all. That’s why you can enjoy the colorful flowers a lot longer on the flower fields. The farmers that grow flowers are mostly located in big greenhouses where the flowers are not visible from the outside. In the greenhouses they can grow tulips and other flowers all year long. So they don’t depend on weather conditions in winter and spring.
