My Life with Daffodils
with Eric Breed, Dutch International Photographer and bulb expert
on Thursday, October 17, 2019, 7 p.m.
Eric Breed was born in the Netherlands, quite literally into a world filled with flower bulbs. He is the son of Kees and the late Fia Breed, who owned what may be the largest collection of narcissi, tulip and colchicums in the world. Famed bulb expert Wim Lemmers is his uncle. And his grandfather’s former growing fields, Zandvliet, are now part of the world-renowned Keukenhof Gardens in South Holland that attracts over one million visitors annually.
We are delighted to have Eric enlighten us on his travels into the wild, his family’s legendary bulb collection, and the criteria used by the Dutch when seeking new flower bulb varieties for the industry.
