It has certainly been cold for the time of the year last week. A lot of sun, but also strong winds and low temperatures and a good night frost. The plants now hide a little and wait for warmer weather. In 1955 the well-known ‘Flipje, Fruitbaasje van Tiel’ was also worried. This little fruit man with the name ‘Flipje’ on his hat was the recognisable logo for the Tiel jam factory. There are 46 original books of the adventures of Flipje made. – Read More –
In early February it was fairly mild weather, so early Stinzenplants showed up quite early. Last week it was colder with regular night frost. In the coming two weeks, according to the weather forecast, it will be a lot colder, sometimes with a slight frost during the day. – Read More –
This is the first report of season 2018 of the Stinzenflora-monitor. For the first time, the site can now also be followed in English.
All participating locations report that the Snowdrops are now mostly above the ground. Due to the cold of the past few days, they are a bit modest and most flowers are not fully open yet. – Read More –
The Calendar in the Stinzenflora-monitor provides up-to-date information about the early spring flowers in the Netherlands at historic locations, the so called Stinzenflora or Stinzenplants. Regularly the monitor also reports on the flowering of the Stinzenplants elsewhere in Europe or about special interesting issues related to these plant species and the cultural history of these plants. All this is richly illustrated with beautiful photos by the correspondents of the Stinzenflora-monitor. Also images from classical herbals and other books are published. This year the list of plants has been extended. The table in the calendar has been updated and is easier to read.
The calendar is active from 10 February – 13 May 2018 on this website. This also includes the information about the many activities in spring which the participants in the Stinzenflora-monitor organise. – Read More –
