Planning to visit Holland on 13-14 May weekend. Will tulips be in full bloom during this weekend ?
Hi Priyanka - Tulips are currently in full bloom now. We recommend coming at your earliest convenience to see the maximum amount of tulips in bloom. It will be up to the weather as to what remains on the 2nd weekend of Tulip Time (May 13/14). We hope to see you soon!
Last week the local paper, The Holland Sentinel, had a front page story title "Tulip Fest or Stem Fest" and they predicted that given the cooler weather expected this week, and that is what we are having, and as long as we didn't get too much rain and wind the Tulips should be quite a display. I haven't been up to main tulip farm to check so I am not sure. But, they are still in fine shape here in Zeeland, a suburb of Holland.
Chances are many will be done by then, depending on how hot it gets between now and then. Cooler temps help them last longer, but many are in full bloom right now. The city always plants late bloomers, too, so I don't think you'll be disappointed, but expect to see some stems in certain areas.
They should be. When we were there, that was the time frame they told us. Everybody was getting ready for Tulip Festival, which I believe is the week you will be there!
