Southern Hemisphere Tulips VS. Northern Hemisphere Tulips: what’s the difference?
In short, it is an availability thing. As you may know, the Northern and Southern Hemisphere are located oppositely to each other on our planet, and therefore the seasons are also opposite. When it is spring in Holland (Northern Hemisphere) and Tulips are flooding our fields, it’s fall in New Zealand (Southern Hemisphere), and over there the growers start to prepare the Tulips bulbs for their winter sleep.
As our Dutch season passes, some growers still have bulbs that they can grow in their greenhouses. The past few months we offered a small selection of these Tulips in our webshop. These Tulips are still grown from bulbs from the Northern Hemisphere, aka Tulips bulbs that are prepared in Holland.
But now Holland enters the fall time, and this means… the New Zealand bulbs are awaking from their winter sleep! They are transported to Holland, where they grow amazing Tulips right in the Dutch green houses.
