June 16th 2022 Bulb Growers – Slootdort – Netherlands
We had an afternoon tour to a Bulb Growers farm owned by the Munster family . It was a major business. We learned that a field could only be use once every 6 years for Tulips and most of the bulbs need to be planted two years before they can be used for growing flowers (One time use) and creating new bulbs. We also learned that all Tulips flowers are raised in the green house and bulbs grown outdoors have the flowers removed so that the growth is moved to the bulb. Below is a link to their website which is quite interesting and shows images during the season when tulips are visible.
Munster farm recommends that if you are going to purchase Tulip bulbs in the USA, this grower you should get them from:
Best prices and highest quality.
