Love and appreciation for nostalgic flower bulbs

Updated: Oct 5


Tulipa 'White Triumphator'


There is an increasing need for time-honoured traditions. This need increases our love, attention and appreciation for old knowledge about nature, so we are putting classic bulb varieties on a pedestal.

Old 'know-how'

As a counterpart to the rapid, mainly technological changes, a desire for familiar traditions and rituals has begun to emerge. In gardens, this manifests itself in nostalgic, classic flower varieties. Using flower bulbs is a logical choice, then. After all, the first tulips arrived in the Netherlands as early as 1593 – how nostalgic is that?

Belonging

In addition to nostalgia, we are increasingly searching for and finding a sense of belonging in the garden. Having your own green space means warmth and security. It feels almost like a living room, but with much more greenery. To enhance this feeling, choose a collection of tulips. They are available in early and late-flowering varieties, so you can enjoy flowers throughout the spring.

Classic varieties

It takes a little effort to find them, but classic flower bulb varieties are still readily available. Find your delightful gems and try combining historical tulips with old-fashioned daffodils and Fritillaria:

Combine them with other special plants, such as climbing roses and special types of fruit trees, to complete your extraordinary green collection.
