Tulip Master Class for Diplomats


On October 5, the leading Dutch company in the floral industry Holland Bulb Market held a master class at the Russian Embassy on planting flower bulbs. Founded 150 years ago, the company is the largest producer of tulips in the world and represented on the markets of more than 50 countries. The Russian Federation is also among its most important trading partners.

The company’s director Joris van der Velden spoke in detail to participants of the seminar from the diplomatic missions of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan about the various aspects of planting tulips in different weather conditions. After that everyone had the opportunity to consolidate acquired knowledge by putting it into practice on the lawn of the Embassy under careful guidance of Holland Bulb Market’s staff.

In the end, the Dutch company handed over 12 thousand bulbs of various flowers as a gift to the embassies of the three countries. We express our sincere gratitude to our Dutch partners and look forward to spring when we can admire the results of our collaboration.
