NOVEMBER 8 – The History of the Tulip
Ila Cox, Plant lover, gardener and student of the plant industry
Let’s explore the history of this wandering beauty! From its cradle in the Himalayan foothills, we follow the tulip’s journey over the centuries through Persia to Western Europe in the 16th Century. It’s in Holland where the tulip becomes a principal actor in an economic drama of historic proportion. “Tulipmania” has direct relevance for our 21st Century.
