Our bulb farm is located in De Zilk, The Netherlands. At this moment, we grow over 300 acres of tulips, hyacinths and daffodils across the Dutch Flower Bulb districts. Ruigrok Flowerbulbs has been growing bulbs for over a century and still remains a respectable farm today, known as one of the largest growers and exporters of premium flower bulbs in Holland. We’re passionate about growing bulbs and always go the extra mile to ensure the best possible harvest and highest quality flower bulbs.
Flower bulbs are grown
in the Netherlands
The culture of flower bulbs, like tulips and hyacinths is concentrated in the coastal area of the Netherlands which has the ideal climate to grow bulbs. In these areas winters are not extremely cold so they don’t freeze. More important, our spring temperatures are also moderate, not too warm, which gives the plants a long period to grow. Tulips and hyacinths in the Netherlands are grown for the bulbs. The bulb starts growing after blooming. As long as the foliage does not die down, the bulbs will continue to grow. Besides the climate the quality of the soil is also of vital importance. Flower bulbs grow best on well drained sandy soils or light clay soils, which can be found at the coastal areas.
At the end of the 16th century, tulip bulbs found their way to the Netherlands, where the Tulip Mania would take place about 70 years later. The Netherlands turned out to be the perfect place for growing and cultivating tulips and tulips have been a Dutch icon ever since.
