It's bulb harvest time in the Netherlands

At Ruigrok Flowerbulbs it is peak season. They are in the middle of their harvest, which means that all flower bulbs are being lifted out of the ground to be carefully prepared for shipping. Their wholesale flower bulbs are available in a wide array of retail packaging designed exclusively for independent garden centers as well as bulk bulbs for professional landscapers, public parks and gardens and greenhouse growers. 

Perfect weather for digging
With their new digging machine they harvest 6 to 7 acres (3 ha) a day. The perfect dry weather really helps speed up the bulb harvest. After digging they dry the bulbs for a week before they start cleaning and grading. Once cleaned and graded in bulk, the bulbs are packed to be shipped overseas, to the U.S. and Canada.

Tulip harvest in the Netherlands
Due to the heatwave in May and June the growing period for the bulbs has been shorter than normal. This results in an overall moderate harvest at all bulb regions in the Netherlands. As shortages are expected to occur, some varieties will be sold out early, so be sure to order on time.
