WHAT IS LOW BLOOM & HIGH BLOOM?
This flourishing contrast in colour is the result of the way we stagger our flowers in the field. We plant three different varieties of tulips which bloom at various times – early season, mid-season, and late season. We plant the varieties at the same time, but they bloom at different times. This explains why every row in the field isn’t in full bloom at once. The way we plant our tulips, along with a willing Mother Nature, of course, is what allows us to be open for 4 to 5 weeks. Just one single warm, sunny day can make the change from low bloom to high bloom!
Occurs during the early budding stages where you will see lots of green buds and some colourful blooms in our field.
Usually takes shape during the remainder of our season, where you will see more tulips in bloom and more colour in our field. Once we’ve reached High Bloom, it’s likely we will remain in High Bloom until the end of the season.
The transition from Low Bloom to High Bloom can happen rather quickly – often in a single day or two. The unpredictable weather is a huge factor, and the reason why we can’t guarantee the exact date this will happen. Suffice to say, there’s a lot of finger crossing in these parts!
