Ordering bulbs separately has become commonplace, but on our website there are many more possibilities. We are proud of our own bulb flower mixtures, which brought us international fame. These bulb mixtures and combinations consist of different types of bulbs that form a beautiful flower bed together. They bloom simultaneously, as one would expect of a good flower mixture.
Bulb flower mixtures, why?
The bulbs in our store are usually sold separately, in small numbers. That is what made Fluwel famous: bulbs for consumers, in quantities that are useful for the garden. Our customers planted daffodils in a circle around a tree, or created a tulip bed in order to welcome the feeling of spring in their garden. But one colour, one species – isn’t that somewhat monotonous?
Fluwel customers can contact us for any questions they have. We often hear questions about combining bulbs. "If I put those plants together, will the combination turn out well?" We are pleased to answer those questions - but we'd rather be one step ahead. So we created Fluwel’s bulb flower mixtures: combinations of bulbs that fit nicely together and start flowering at the same time. Plant this mixture and enjoy a truly colourful spring!
Flower bulbs in contrast
What is beautiful? Fluwel has no single answer for that question. There are as many opinions about bulbs as there are about flowers. The same goes for a good flower combination as for a tasty meal or formal dress: contrast and combination should go together.
Choose flowers that fit together, for example in hue and size, but dare to contrast to an extent, by just adding a different colour or by working with different heights.
The mixtures of Carlos
Flower bulbs are the great passion of Carlos van der Veek, co-founder of Fluwel and a well-known collector of daffodils. He is also the creative brain behind our bulb flower mixtures. Inspired by the work of colleagues in the Netherlands and abroad, he has developed special mixtures that are for sale in the Fluwel shop.
