Dutch flower growers to make world's largest garden in China

Dutch horticulturalists are going to develop the world’s largest flower park in Guangzhou, China. The 100-hectare World Flower Park is being designed by Dutchman Jan Guldemond who for 36 years was the head designer of the world famous Keukenhof park in the Netherlands.

World Flower Park will be triple the size of the Dutch park and will have a Holland section featuring sand dunes and dikes, a typical Dutch farm, houses and a windmill. The megapark is more than a tourist attraction; it will also serve as a platform to promote horticultural products and expertise from around the world. It is expected many more Dutch flower and plant growers will be involved in the development of the park. During a trade mission to China this week, the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and the Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Lilianne Ploumen will sign the agreement sealing the Dutch participation in the project. “It’s a beautiful example of Dutch and Chinese entrepreneurship,” Ms. Ploumen said. “The project is advantageous for not only our key horticulture sector, but for other Dutch businesses as well. It’s Holland at its best.”
