FC Talks: Arjan Smit - Tulip Promotion Netherlands

In this episode we have Arjan Smit, Tulip grower, and chairman of Tulip Promotion Netherlands as our guest.

You probably guessed it: it's all about tulips!

With Arjan we Talk about this symbol of Holland. About the interesting history of the Tulip (and how it repeated).

We also talk about how long the breeding process is (a whole generation!) and how Tulips are grown, outside for the bulbs, and in the greenhouse for the flowers.

What started as a crazy idea 10 years ago of making a Tulip mosaic on the Dam Square in Amsterdam, is now one of the events that TPN organizes.

Tulip Days are now also organized in other countries, amongst other great initiatives to promote the Tulip. This, and much more in this Flower Circus Talks.
