History of flower bubs

The most famous flower bulb is the tulip. Tulip comes from the word

Tulipa which is Latin for: the flower that looks like a turban (tulipan).

Tulips were already grown and traded in Turkey in the Middle

Ages. In those days, the men there wore turbans, which is where

the name came from ! So tulips are descended from those tulips

in Turkey, which were brought to the Netherlands.

Around 1550, Turkey was a powerful country. There was a rich

sultan there called Sultan Suleiman. His palace gardens were full

of the most beautiful tulips. Sometimes he gave a few flower bulbs

to a famous guest as a gift. One of these famous guests was a Mr

Busbeq, a nobleman from Flanders (Belgium). He gave the tulip

bulbs to a friend of his, called Carolus Clusius. This Mr Clusius

was in charge of the Emperor of Austria’s herb garden. Clusius later

left and came to the Netherlands. He became a professor at Leiden

University (the Netherlands) and he also became the boss of the

University’s herb garden. He did all kinds of experiments with the

tulips he’d brought with him. He didn’t sell them. Then one night, it

happened. Some of his most beautiful tulip bulbs were stolen from

the garden. Those stolen bulbs from Turkey were the beginning of

the flower bulb trade in the Netherlands!
