Neil Zonneveld will take us through the yearly cycle of the Flower Bulb Farm that has been in his family for three generations. He will describe the breeding program which began with his grandfather and continues today and the propagating and preparing of bulbs for the export market. With his vast knowledge of the flower bulb industry, Neil will debunk some myths about tulips, share with us some new technics, and show new and innovating planting concepts for use all year round.
