SPRING GARDEN OF EUROPE
In the spring Keukenhof is naturally THE flower attraction of Holland. In the 32 ha park millions of bulb flowers bloom in all colors of the rainbow for eight weeks. The flower bulbs for Keukenhof are supplied by some one hundred companies. The bulbs are planted by about thirty gardeners from the end of September until the first frost. Keukenhof has been using layered planting for the past ten years to ensure that plenty of color can be seen throughout the entire park from March until May. This means that the bulbs are planted on top of each other. First come the late-blooming tulips, deepest in the ground, above them the early-blooming tulips, above them the crocuses.
