Tulip News: cultivation France

In France it was relatively cold and therefore the harvest will be a little later than last year, but it lays slightly ahead compared to the harvest in Holland, although at some places you can already see small tips emerging from the soil, of particularly the forced varieties.

From now on, they expect a night temperature of around 0 degrees and the day temperature can climb up to 15°C.

Statistics springflowering flowerbulbs

Tulip statistic news

The spring statistics of tulips show a reduction in area of 2% which partly is due to the shrunken area of Yokohama of which 81 hectares fewer were planted. Also much less bulbs of Monte Carlo have been planted showing a decrease of 31 ha. Strong Gold however, has been grown with 57 ha to 477 ha. In the red cultivars, Ile de France shows a small reduction of 20 ha. The level of Ben van Zanten is about the same as last year and the number of hectares of Leen van der Mark has diminished with 12. Dow Jones grows with 4 ha to 52 ha and Jan Seignette with 28 ha to 80 ha.

Tulip crop news

From the beginning of the season the tulip flower prices
9660.jpgare good. Even after Valentine’s Day the prices remain stable, just like the quality of the flowers and only few problems can be noticed in the forcing market. Because of the good prices, the tulip forcers are already in the market to buy harvest 2011. The bulb growers are little reluctant to sell and make some more money for their bulbs.
