In spring, Holland’s tulips, daffodils and hyacinths are a rainbow of colour – an eye-popping array of unforgettable blooms, flowering in stunning gardens all over the country. And who better to guide you around them than one of Britain’s best-loved gardeners: Charlie Dimmock.
On our new seven-day Holland river cruise on board the 4-star MS Serenity, Woman & Home readers will visit the famous Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse, Holland – known as the “Garden of Europe” – where more than seven million bulbs are planted each year across 80 acres.
You’ll also explore the fabulous grounds of Bouchout Castle, which boast more than 18,000 species of plants, and the famous annual Floralia Flower Show – where more than 500 varieties of flowers are on display in the grounds of Chateau de Grand-Bigard.
