    Well those photos confirm the idea that all tulips are grown in Holland only to be shipped to countries like Japan where they flower the first year, grow the next, and then perish - sounds like a good business model :rollhappy:

    Actually millions of bulbils are sent to the greenhouse in Virginia where we are leasing space; other lessee sells millions of cut flower tulips on major holidays and steady supply rest of time; all starts are shipped from holland

    Burger Bush is my favorite get-away during winter. Not too many places that you can wander arround in a 'tropical rainforest' complete with reptiles and fruit bats in the middle of winter in Europe (and it is a mere few km from home):)
