You me want to visit the Flower auction in Aalsmeer, this is the largest
flower auction in the World.

Aalsmeer is an half our drive from Amsterdam and 20 minutes from the
Floriade, about 40 minutes from the Keukenhof and that is in Lisse. Aalsm=eer
is lying in the province North Holland. So everything is nearby , you can
even do it by bike.

I my self work on a Lilac nursery, all the flowers will be gone before Ma=y
so there is nothing interesting to see,  I can only give you a boat ride
past the fields were the Lilac tree's grow.
