Bloom Report

 

(update April 20th: estimated opening day April 27th - tickets go on sale as soon we know when we open)

Update 04-20-18: Finally sunny! But still windy and cold... we have 1 variety ready to be picked, but we do not open before +/- 30% is blooming,because we don’t want to disappoint you! Because of the cold weather it doesn’t look like we open by the 25th...  maybe the 27th or 28th.

 

Update 04-18-18: 99.9% of the flowers are NOT blooming yet. This picture is of a very early tulip which is blooming all by itself. :( We bummed up our opening day estimation to the 27th. It has been very cold  the last few days and the tulips progress slowly... So we all need to wait patiently 

Update 04-12-18: Our first blooming tulip!)

 Update 06-05-17: We are digging all bulbs up every year. It takes +/- 4 weeks with +/- 10 employees. Lots of hard work, but worth it!

Update 06-05-17: we imported this beauty from Holland. It is a "Holder", a German made one cylinder diesel two wheel tractor from the 70's. We use this tractor to dig-up the bulbs, our workers pickup the bulbs by hand and place them in the crates.
