We love to teach all nature-lovers; this is why we've created several tours that focus on one type of flower.
In this blog we wanted to emphasize three of our tours; tour 18, 19 & 20. These start off with an impressive visit to the world's largest flower auction and are followed by activities dedicated to one specific flower. Keep reading to learn more about each tour!
Tour 18 – All about peonies
During this tour, you'll learn all about peonies; we will visit the annual peony flower show that contains over 125 varieties of this beautiful flower and (after a delicious lunch) we'll pay a visit to the peony breeders and growers.
Fun fact; did you know these flowers originate from China and its roots were used to cure fevers?
Tour 19 – The colorful and magical hydrangea
These extraordinary flowers change color; when they are fully grown they are vibrant pink, purple, blue, white or green and they turn into a deeper, darker color as they age.
We usually focus on the ‘Flower Trials' week and it's ‘Open House' during this tour, but sadly we won't be able to attend this event as normal due to the COVID-19 virus. That doesn't mean we can't enjoy the beautiful hydrangea; visit the impressing greenhouses that grow them and learn more about why this flower is a (national) garden favorite!
Tour 20 – The most elegant of flowers; the lily
These flowers are the definition of a classic beauty; its elegant shape and wide varieties in color make it one of the best-known flowers in the world. The appearance of the lily is not the only reason why people quickly fall in love with it; this flower also has several symbolic meanings such as purity, love, virtue and serenity.
It is also used in both weddings and funerals, making it an extremely versatile flower to express emotions. Join us as we visit several breeders of these delicate flowers.
There are even more tours that are centered around a single flower (e.g. the orchid) for you to discover. Take a look at our tours and we'll make sure you get an experience you will always remember!
