From 14 February to 9 April 2017 the Hortus will draw your attention to the small but very impressive flowering bulbs in the collection.

The words ‘flowering bulbs’ make most people think of tulips and daffodils but there is so much more to see in the Hortus. For this exhibition a new (small) glasshouse will be built. Building activities have already started and should be finished in February 2017. This is not only for the climate a welcome addition, but also for security reasons. Most people would not believe it, but a lot of these bulbs are actually so costly that most of them get stolen. For the first time now, the Hortus has an opportunity to show these beautiful flowers to the public.
