Fields covered with plastic

  • Posted on Tuesday, November 14, 2017

At the end of last week, the conditions were good to cover the field of recently planted tulip bulbs with plastic foil. This foil ensures that the tulips will flower earlier next spring, and therefore the bulbs can be harvested earlier as well. This way, the tulips will flower approximately 2 weeks earlier next winter (2018/2019) than they would without plastic foil, which makes them suitable for Christmas flowering.
