Floralia: The Bold and the Beautiful

Floralia Brussels

Enjoy the wonderful sight of over 1 million flowering bulbs in the grounds of the Castle of Groot-Bijgaarden

If you love spring flowers – and who doesn’t? – then a couple of hours walking around the Castle of Groot-Bijgaarden on the eastern outskirts of Brussels will be time very well spent.

Every year the Castle grounds look resplendent with a wonderful display of over 500 different types of flowering bulbs, including 400 tulip varieties. Apparently over one million bulbs have been planted in the grounds – all by hand! (My back is aching at the thought of it!)

More information is here: Floralia 2018, which is open from 6 April to 6 May.

In the meantime, here are some lovely photos by my friend Reece, who visited the exhibition last year.

Thanks Reece!

  1. Look at those tulips! How glorious. We just can’t grow them like that here.

  2. Wow, the warm weather did the trick! There were clearly a lot more flowers in bloom than the previous weekend, Denzil! I`ve got to get my photos posted…and I hope to return for more 🙂

    • I’m always amazed at how quickly flowers come out Wendy. A day or two of warm sunshine makes so much difference!

  3. Loved the flowers (they are my weakness).
    Thank you for this post. 🙂
