RoozenGaarde Display Garden-2015. 150 pictures


It's our family tradition to visit the Skagit Tulip Festival each spring.
Every April for the past several years, I shared pictures of the daffodil and tulip fields, and also, the stunning displays of spring flowers at RoozenGaarde /Washington Bulb Company.
This year, the blooms were ready for show unusually early, a month early to be exact.
We traveled to the valley on the 27th of March.
I was excited to see something different - not only the blooming tulips, but also the tulips in wait.
There is a special charm in the buds preparing to open. They are not less exciting then the open flowers.


Brief information about the place:


Farm History: Washington Bulb Company was founded by Dutch emigrants William and Helen Roozen in 1955.  Established with only 5 acres of land, the Roozen family now farms nearly 2,000 acres (including 1000 acres fo tulips, daffodils and irises) in addition to growing fresh-cut flowers under 15 acres of greenhouse space.  RoozenGaarde was founded in 1985 to serve as the company’s retail division and display garden.  The display garden has grown in size over the years and we now design and plant the display garden with 135+ flower varieties and 1.4 million bulbs during the months of autumn.
AgFARMation: RoozenGaarde/Washington Bulb Company is the largest grower of tulip, daffodil and iris bulbs in North America.

  1. I wonder how they keep their tulip foliage looking so pristine. The slugs seem to love mine. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.

  2. It's like paradise. Fabulous views of many blooming tulips, daffodils and nnych flowers. This reminds me of a garden in Keukenhof in the Netherlands, where I was. Yours sincerely.

  3. Amazing pictures of Roozen Gaarde, it is a bit like our Keukenhof, but your tulips are earlier.

  4. What an extraordinary visual feast! Tulips don't repeat well here and are mostly treated as expensive annuals. They are so lovely though. Who can resist planting at least a few?

  10. Thanks for visiting my blog, Tatyana. I see you live in our beautiful Pacific Northwest and the last post on your blog is of Roozengaarde's. Your pictures are superb and it looks like everything is at its peak. We haven't been there yet this year, though we did go to see the fields and the Snow Geese about three weeks ago. We'll probably go to see Roozengaarde's next week. We're in the Olympics now - have been for three days.

  11. Your gorgeous images of this magicall place are always inspiring! Another wonderful family tradition! I was planning on going up this week to see the tulips but got busy catching up in the garden. Oh well, next year! I can't imagine the amount of work it takes to replant these beds each fall. Do they let the bulb foliage ripen off and re use or sell them or are most of them discarded after their moment in the sun? Do they plant annuals in the beds for summer or just leave them bare until next spring? Thank you for the pictures and the information!
