"...The country’s tulip season generally runs from April to mid-May..." (very nice photos!)

I don't think the answer has anything to do with Amsterdam, it's to do with the flowers themselves. Tulips anywhere (Washington State, for example) bloom in the springtime.

Since tulips are a SPRING flower, the only ones you might find are in flower shops shipped in from someplace in the southern hemisphere

But seriously - no tulips in Sept . . . . .

Little known fact--the Rose is actually the #1 flower in Holland/Netherlands not the tulip.

Travel04, Don't know where you live but protect those bulbs from the little critters. Either my front yard squirrel or my back yard rabbit keeps getting my bulbs every year.
