Tulipa

In 1451 wordt er al een tulp gekweekt in de tuin van sultan Mehmed gelegen in Istanbul. In 1520 tijdens het bewind van Suleyman de Prachtlievende wordt de tulp een onlosmakelijk onderdeel van de Ottomaanse cultuur. “In 1554 zag Augerius Gislenius Busbequis (Ogier Ghiselin de Busbecq) tussen het toenmalige Adrianopel en Constantinopel voor het eerst tulpen bloeien en Conrad Gessner bracht in 1559 tulpen van Constantinopel naar Augsburg. Carolus Clusius, de beroemde botanicus, zond tulpenbollen die hij van Busbequis in Wenen had gekregen naar West-Europa en legde zich met grote ijver op de cultuur toe. Weldra kweekte hij meerdere verscheidenheden, in welke hij handel dreef. In 1601 beschreef hij in ’Rariorum Plantarum Historica’ negentien verschillende tulpen en gaf van vijf een afbeelding. De eerste tulp in Nederland kwam in het bezit van de Amsterdamse apotheker Wallich Ziewiertz, vermoedelijk omstreeks 1570, doch geheel zeker is dat niet.” Dit is het begin van ’Iets over de geschiedenis van tulpen’, wat u aantreft in het boek: ’Bloembollen in huis en tuin’ geschreven door de op 107-jarige leeftijd in Heemstede overleden nestor van het Bloembollenvak, de heer J.F.Ch. Dix. De tulpen werden in Turkije ’ontdekt’, maar de bakermat van vele species ligt in West- en Midden-Azië, Noord-Afrika maar ook in Europa. Er zijn vele boeken verschenen over de tulp.
