Floriade happens only ONCE EVERY TEN YEARS. I was at the show in 2002 and it was huge! This tour will give us a full day there so you can take as much of it in as possible. Visitors to Floriade 2012 will have the opportunity to enjoy the most exquisite and exceptional flowers, plants, trees, fruit and vegetables of the world exhibited over 40 hectares, 7,000m2 of which are indoor flower and plant shows.

The Floriade 2012 World Horticultural Expo promises to be an even bigger and better spectacle than its previous incarnation which was held in the municipality of Haarlemmermeer in the Netherlands. Happening once every decade, the Floriade 2012 will be held in the charming city of Venlo, right across Fresh Park Venlo, where over a hundred exhibitors will showcase their collection of exceptional plants, trees, vegetables and flowers decked out in various plant pots or laid out in colorful garden plots and pavillions.

The central theme of Floriade 2012 will be “Be part of the theatre in nature, get closer to the quality of life”. This overall theme will be presented in five core sub-themes, translated into 5 themed zones on the park. These zones will cover the different aspects of the relationship between the consumer and the horticultural sector. ‘Green Engine’ portrays horticulture as the green engine of the economy. ‘Education & Innovation’ relate the story of horticulture over the years while exploring the future of the sector at the same time. For ‘Environment’ the central element is the importance of greenery at home, on the streets and in the working environment. ‘Relax & Heal’ focuses on health, movement (physical wellbeing), food and enjoying the true flavour of products. Plus, World Show Stage events will show how international art, culture and entertainment inspire the horticultural sector and vice versa.

A tidbit of Keukenhof…

Keukenhof That’s the place to see spring blossom. The park is unique, world famous, and has been one of the most popular destinations in the Netherlands for sixty years now. Haven’t seen Keukenhof? Then you haven’t seen the Netherlands. You won’t find such an abundance of colours and fragrances anywhere else. More than seven million flowers form a glorious decor for the most beautiful photos. Come to Keukenhof and enjoy the ultimate spring feeling, the wonderful works of art, the surprising inspirational gardens and the many flower shows in three pavilions.

The historical garden is one of the most striking Keukenhof attractions. An oasis that lives and breathes the atmosphere of a historic castle garden. Various collections of historical spring bulbs and tuberous plants are on display, including old tulip varieties from the Hortus Bulborum (also on our tour) and 17th-century daffodils. Species that were sometimes cultivated for hundreds of years and are now almost impossible to buy. It is an unknown fact that, in early spring, this is also the warmest spot in Keukenhof, on the benches lining the slate wall. In the historical garden they have recently added the reconstruction of eight flowerbeds from the oldest Dutch Botanical garden, the Hortus Botanicus in Leiden (from 1590). Under the watchful eye of founder Carolus Clusius, albeit in the form of a bust, ancient varieties of tulips and crocus, anemones, fritillaria and lilies are in glorious bloom. A visit to the historical garden is a walk through the highpoints of Dutch flower bulb history.
