Now in their 68 year, the Dutch bulb fields at Keukenhof attract millions of visitors. The 32 hectares bulb fields are a sight to behold with more seven million bulbs planted and 800 varieties of tulips.
Ken Crowther met up with Director of Keukenhof, Bart Siemerink to find out how it all started.



It’s a great time to start thinking about summer flowering bulbs which will inject a bit of colour to the summer garden. From dahlia’s to canna lilies they will brighten up a border and give a great perfume too, as Ken Crowther and Geoff discussed in the World Radio Gardening Studio.



The weather conditions in Essex make it an ideal place to raise plants from seed. On their 300 acre farm in Coggeshall Kings Seeds have been following a production process which has been in place for over 100 years. Ken Crowther meet Andrew Tokely on the Kings Seeds plot to find out more.
