On the cosy town square in the flower village of Lisse, children can come and pick a beautiful, colourful bunch of tulips in the specially designed picking garden.

Tulip season

Every year, around 1.7 billion Dutch tulips bring a sense of spring into the home. Every year in January, Dutch tulip growers create a giant garden on Dam Square with some 200,000 tulips. More than 10,000 people come to pick tulips for free. This is the official kick-off of the tulip season.

We are also working on a large daffodil garland of up to 825 metres long!

Tulips from the greenhouse
The tulips used for the picking garden come from the greenhouse. Tulips can also be grown in water. The bulbs are then pressed on pins. It is very important that the bulbs are watered immediately. Special machines are used for this purpose. The bulbs are placed in a refrigeration area. There, too, they are given enough water to prevent them from drying out. After about three weeks, the tulip bulbs leave the cold store and go into the warm greenhouse. The bulbs now have no soil to draw their nutrients from. Growers have therefore added nutrients to the water.

After about three to four weeks, the bulbs have grown into sturdy tulips. They are ready to be picked in the picking garden!

Nice if you also visit the tulip picking garden in Lisse!
