Keukenhof ("Kitchen garden") has been the world's largest flower garden for over 50 years. The garden was established in 1949 by the then-mayor of Lisse. The idea was to present a flower exhibit where growers from all over the Netherlands and Europe could show off their hybrids – and help the Netherlands export industry.

The park is divided in sub-gardens where each bulb producer can display their best flowers. Visitors can buy the bulbs of any of the flowers seen during the spring. The bulbs are delivered in the fall.

One of my favourite photos on this contest. A flower garden market is a good idea. Nice colours and excellent entry. Good luck.

Greetings, Ninkwe.
