    Hi guys, I am visiting the netherlands with friends from Canada. They would like to the flower fields. Are there still flower fields in early July which are still blooming? If so, could you give a link to them?

    Well unfortunately, keukenhof is closed already, BloemenCorso also happened.

    The next Corso is a few months away:

    I'm checking Westland, the glass houses where all food comes from, and some of the flowers, which grow there all year round, but they only offer hortus botanicus (just gardens, with some of the flowers), but I can not find guided tours.
    I checked the Zaanstreek, but alas...

    There is the flower market in Amsterdam, that is all year round, but most things sold are flowerbulbs, however, you will see the sporadical flower in bloom.

    You should have to visit before end of may for the flower fields, June is already too late. There are spots where you can then take a picture with huge fields with Dutch windmills on the background. Come back next year ;)

    Not the same, but if you just like to see some nice flowers and plants I can recommend the utrecht botanic gardens. 6 different kind of gardens, a Tropical Butterfly Festival and if you like a guided tour.

    Yeah, the butterflies get slices of oranges and you can take nice pictures. It's in a dome, so very hot and moist inside... +1 for a nice day out.
