We are not fooling you, in Holland early spring has arrived! Daffodils are in full bloom and so are the early hyacinths. For the Ruigrok crew this is a very busy period, as we are continuously monitoring our bulb fields until the last blooms have faded.
Tourists in flower fields
During April and May many tourists from all over the world visit Holland to enjoy the Dutch flower fields. As dutch flower growers, of course we welcome all visitors, but we would like to ask them: please do not enter our fields and walk through the flowers. Entering the flower fields will damage our products and increase the chance of spreading plant viruses or infections. “Enjoy the flowers, respect our pride.”
