Hortus Bulborum historical flowerbulbgarden Limmen

LIMMEN

The Hortus Bulborum is the only garden in the world with over 4200 different kinds of bulbs in full bloom each year. They vary from tulips, daffodils and hyacinths to other, most historical species of flower bulbs. From a commercial point of view, most of the flowers on show are no longer worth growing, but in our Hortus they are carefully preserved for later generations. Each spring thousands of close ranged flowerbeds, measuring from 22 to 108 square feet, show their brilliant colours in a stunning variety and spread their exceptional fragrances.
