Amsterdam's floating flower market, which was established in 1862 on the Singel Canal, is the most famous flower extravaganza and expo in the world. The barges on the Singel Canal, one of the oldest in Amsterdam, are overflowing with an array of colors, textures and flower species, the most popular and globally well-known being the famous Dutch tulip. However, not everyone can take a round trip to the Netherlands just to pick up specialty flowers for their spring garden. There is nothing to worry about. Breck's, a retail store known for its knowledge and expertise in Dutch flowers, can ship a bit of the Netherlands directly to your doorstop.
Breck's has 194 years of horticulture and nursery experience. The expert staff knows which of their bulbs grows best in America and where they will flourish. This makes sense, being that Breck's prides itself on being operated by a skilled staff that all come from Dutch families. Generations of nursery experience have enabled Breck's to provide the finest flower bulbs available on the market.
Voltaire, the famous French writer and philosopher, once said: "We must all learn to cultivate our gardens." While Voltaire was waxing poetic about our internal garden, every gardener or landscaper will tell you that going outside and getting muddy, planting flowers and designing a garden space is calming and peaceful work. It is one way to get closer to nature. Planning a blueprint for your garden is no different that nurturing your heart and soul, as Voltaire suggested in his quote. Brecks provides the type of high quality flowers that will make your garden special.
Breck's ships flowers in the spring and fall, as these are the planting seasons. From perennials and lilies to daffodils, tulips and everything type of flora and fauna in between, Breck's has an unbeatable selection to choose from. In other words, Breck's offers the greatest hits in Dutch flowers, bulbs and plants.
However, Breck's is different than other specialty retailers in more ways that in its Dutch ancestry. Many people are nervous about ordering flowers. They think the flowers are going to be damaged upon arrival. Breck's allows you to be the ultimate judge of its quality. If you plant the bulbs and the flowers do not grow to your satisfaction, Breck's will refund or exchange the product. That is not going to happen at a local nursery or a large box store.
Gardening can be difficult work. While some people are born with a green thumb, others cannot tell the difference between a weed and a flower. Whether you are a novice or an avid gardener, the high quality of Breck's flowers is undisputed. It is just like you are in Amsterdam buying the bulbs from the floating market.
