Flower Fields of the Netherlands
In the Netherlands, one can easily imagine ever-expanding fields of colorful flowers.

This country's flower fields are not just aesthetically pleasing, but also economically valuable.

A wide array of flowers
Many people associate the Netherlands with tulips, but the country also produces other kinds of flowers, including daffodils, hyacinths, and crocuses from the end of March through the end of May. In summer, they make way for gladiolas, dahlias, carnations, and asters. It is actually the Netherlands that offers the largest variety of plants to be sold compared to other flower-selling countries.
A number of new flowers are also bred and introduced each year by the country's horticultural experts. The improved cultivation technology now makes it possible to grow many species of plants that aren't normally found in the region. As these plants are usually grown in greenhouses, tulips continue to dominate the famous flower fields. A wide variety of color combinations are possible with these flowers.
Bulbs love the Dutch weather
A mysterious combination of acidity, sea air, and sand, among other factors, explains why flowers thrive here more than in, say, the south of the Netherlands. Over four centuries ago, rich merchants in inland regions built chic mansions on top of the sand dunes near the sea. Beautiful flowers were obviously necessary for such a stunning mansion. A dune soil containing peat had proven the perfect breeding ground for plants like tulips, crocuses, daffodils, and daffodils.
Despite the humid, salty air and perfect aeration, the acidity proved to be a match made in heaven. And the Dutch climate definitely helps. The cold ‘shocks’ flower bulbs, which they need to grow from a marble to the size of a small tennis ball. In order to grow and look beautiful, it is important to have regular rain. This is the weather preferred by spring flowering bulbs such as tulips, whereas summer flowering bulbs prefer the dark. Dutch people prefer to be dry and warm while enjoying the light, which is why they complain about the weather.

After the flowers were imported to the Netherlands from Turkey in the mid-16th century, their popularity soared as European elites began to view the flower as a status symbol. The varieties with multicolored petals were particularly popular. People began digging up and stealing bulbs every night during the night because the plants became so popular! The tulip bulb became known as "tulipomania" when so many people were willing to trade so much for a single bulb which caused the first ever economic bubble. Tulip collecting amongst the elite became a popular pastime during the Dutch Golden Age of trade. Despite the burst of this "bubble," the Netherlands remained a hub of flower and bulb production.
