Holland's Keukenhof Gardens
Known as the largest and most impressive garden variety tulips in the garden is located near Amsterdam, in the town of Lisse. Because it is open only two months, during spring, you must get there at that time of year to admire its splendor. Of course you will find very many flowers, but many visitors, so empower yourself with patience. The landscape is complemented by several small rivers, waterways, several simple bridges, fountains and ornamental ponds. It is one of the most photographed gardens in the world.
The idea to make this garden belonged to Major in 1949 Lisse. He collaborated with many local gardeners, but also foreigners. Their goal was to create an outdoor exhibition of flowers and produce hybrid varieties of tulips last obtained through various repeated and controlled crossings.
The exhibition takes place from the end of March and last April and May. It is open from 8 am to 7 and half in the evening. The garden has over 7 million plants some of which bloom throughout the period. He has over 32 hectares and sometimes you can even take more than a day to visit, especially if you are avid fans of flowers. Paths are straight, easy way, including those with physical disabilities. In total there are actually seven gardens with different themes. We find a Mediterranean garden, city or the traditional model.
At one end of the garden there is a windmill, attraction, and landmark. All are used as a landmark and old and tall trees that are beautiful in the garden or bushes clipped and groomed, full of colorful flowers, perfect. Also there are many greenhouses and exhibition, some very busy cafes and terraces. But the tulips are not the only flowers that you can see in this garden, there are daffodils, hyacinths to bloom at this time. Greenhouses are filled with delicate orchids and azaleas and hydrangeas. There is an exhibition of Japanese flower. All flowers are marked.
Tulips are grown on the whole space, the fields that form a kind of narrow. You can buy tulips and tulip flower bulbs. Here you can find the most appropriate advice on the growth of these flowers. You can also buy real encyclopedias and books on gardening and of course about tulips.
A walk through this garden is a real lesson in modern landscape where you can find, in an interesting harmony of colors, different types of plants. Everywhere there are statues and ornamental pots. As expected, a ride in this space means complete relaxation, comfort and good mood.
