Episode 3 answers the question that is often asked after the first two episodes of 'Bollenjongens': why are there no girls in the series? The boys explain.
The Keukenhof is the largest flower park in the world that attracts more than a million visitors every year. But that's really secondary. The park is actually mainly a place for growers to show their customers which bulbs they produce with their own show garden. But the park must of course be a beautiful whole. And designer Frans takes care of that. He tells Johan how he does that and Johan takes the opportunity to ask whether he can also get his own flower bed in the Keukenhof together with the 'bollenjongens'.
Frans also regularly visits growers to discuss the design of their show garden. How does Frans envisage this and can the growers supply the bulbs for it? And do the growers themselves have any wishes? Bollenjongen Mark also has a show garden in the park and Frans will visit Mark to put together his perk for the coming season.
Tim is into hyacinths and will eventually take over the company from his father and uncle together with his cousin. Tim tells what it is like to work in a family business and why he chose it after working for a different boss. Today Tim is in Voorhout to plant hyacinths on the land and that turns out to be a bizarre job, which is a lot more labour-intensive than planting tulips. Johan discovers the office humor of the hyacinth planters.
And can you learn to become a 'bollenjongen'? You can go to school for it, but according to the 'bollenjongens' you won't make it.
