Fallow deer are painted on this Giant Tulip Bulb as they can also be seen at garden center ‘Hulsebosch bij de Hertjes’. The company is located in the area that used to consist of low dunes and beach plains. This is also the scenery painted on the bulb. The coast and dunes moved inland from the ice age to Sassenheim-Lisse-Hillegom. These villages are located on the oldest coastal dunes, namely those from 3800 BC. The originally infertile soil of the low dunes turned out to be extremely suitable for bulb cultivation in the later centuries. To a large extent, these dunes have therefore been excavated. (The so-called sand rows).
On the other side of the sphere, Narsissus ‘Jetfire’ and Muscari are painted, which are grown by Hulsebosch and are the pride of the company. From the company there is a view of the water tower of Hillegom, a striking landmark in the region.
