Getaway to Holland for a stunning river cruise and tulip expo!
California Garden Clubs, Inc. CGCI, is offering an eight day Holland river cruise that will include both Keukenhoff for tulips and the Floriade Expo from April 12 to April 20, 2012.
This is an opportunity that comes only once every ten years since the Floriade is a horticulture show in a historic park setting put on by Holland in ten year intervals.
Keukenhof is a unique, world famous park, and has been one of the most popular travel destinations in the Netherlands for sixty years.
More than seven million spring blooming flowers will be blooming including tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and other spring bulbs, to create a glorious garden lovers scene.
And for bulb collectors, the Dutch National Bulb Market, will be held from October 14 to 16, 2011 in the Oranje-Nassau Pavilion at Keukenhof, Lisse, offering an exceptional range of exclusive and extraordinary bulbs. They are shown by growers that have specialised in the cultivation of sensational bulbs.
Lake Tahoe and California gardeners should contact Chris Merkel at 877-651-7447 for trip details and to reserve your spot well in advance.
