Tulip timing 2012

by efsunderland Online Now Feb 25, 2012 at 8:11 AM

Is there any information at this time about how the extreme cold this winter may affect the timing of the tulip blossoms? We are hoping to visit about the 12th and 13th of April. If the tulips are not ready, would we expect something else worth seeing at Keukenhof?

    They will be ready.

    Before that cold period, the first got out and some got some frost damage, but I just maintained my garden and they are growing like crazy again.

    BTW At the Keukenhof there also are a lot of indoor garden displays and they ame at one kind blossomming for each week the gardens are open.

    For tulips: there are so-called early- and late blossoming tulip kinds.

    Thank you. However, we are particularly interested in photographing the bulb fields.

    In my opinion it is a little bit early for the bulbfields itself (especially tulips are often later - end of April - blossoming).

    There will be tulips left. The farmers will not let them blossom all in the same week. There are different kind of tulips and each kind blossoms at its own pace,

    If possible I would recommend visiting 1 week earlier.
    End of April/early May is high-season for the tulips. If you come later there will be (much) less flowers left on the fields.
