Our top 10 of “Amazing Tulips”

This period is an exciting time for Ruigrok Flowerbulbs. The blooming season has coming to an end (which was a festive and colorful event as always) and now we wait for the bulbs to grow as big and strong as they can for the harvest in June and July! The circle of life of our tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and crocus is an interesting process. You can find some more information about our nursery here.

Tulips come in many shapes, sizes and colors, and the blooming period varies per type. It is up to you to pick out which species suits your needs best. To help you choose, we have highlighted the most amazing varieties for landscaping in our assortment. Check out Ruigroks top 10:
