I'll check on Veenwijk, Sjoerd - it was 11 years ago so details are rusty. I saw the Floriade with a friend in 2002(?): an American girl who was a member of our Rotary Club during her two years in SA, who returned to Den Haag to marry her Dutch fiance two weeks before my visit! It was a sort of combo - since I had once again missed Keukenhof! We had a lot of fun and she said afterwards that my enthusiasm had helped her make the adjustment to the thought of a life in Holland after the wide-open spaces of America and Africa! As for the English gardeners - probably you are right!

Hoorn, the Netherlands

Ok Jack... I'm sort of curious now.
Nice story about the american girl that got married.
You just don't have any luck at all with the Keukenhof, do you.

I went to the 2002 Floriade as well.
