Flower Alerts 2023

23 March 2023 | After a week of much rain and little sunshine in the Netherlands, we are now ready for spring. The higher temperatures have been good for flowers to bloom. Currently, crocuses and daffodils are mostly blooming. Hyacinths and early tulips are also showing their first colour. At the Keukenhof, the blooms are ahead of those of the flower fields. This is because the flowers in the flower park are better sheltered by the trees and because early flower varieties are deliberately planted in the flower park. From today, 23 March, most tulip activities are open. Are you already coming to the flowers this weekend? Then be sure to visit the beautiful flower shows in the Keukenhof greenhouses.

*Please note! The flowering of spring flowers depends on several factors. The weather and the moment the grower removes the flower from the stem influence the flower fields. At Keukenhof and the other show gardens, different weather conditions are taken into account and the flowers are not removed from the stems. As a result, the flowers at the flower attractions bloom throughout the season.

When do the flower fields bloom in the Netherlands?

The most famous Dutch flower fields are the tulip fields. They bloom from the beginning of April until the end of April. But there are many more beautiful flowers to admire in Holland. In the spring, the hyacinths and daffodils bloom alongside the tulip fields. And from mid-August, the highly varied Dahlia flower can be admired in various show gardens in Holland.

The tulip fields in spring are world famous. Besides tulips, many other flowers bloom in this period. Crocus, narcissus and hyacinth, among others, make the Bulb Region a colourful place. With our Flower Alerts, we will be showing the status of the flower fields every week from the beginning of March.

The flower fields are perfect to discover with a bicycle tour. Several bicycle routes have been developed.

From mid-August until mid-October you can enjoy the versatile dahlia flowers. The dahlia flowers can be seen at the various dahlia show gardens in Holland. With our Flower Alerts we will show you the status of the flower fields every week from the beginning of March.
