Growing Belgian Flax That Produces Belgian Linens
In Ingelmunster there is a little village that’s in the heart of Flanders, a city in Belgium. There you will see that are plenty of nice flax fields, lush during the summertime. And when you visit the there, expect to see seemingly endless Belgian flax growing.
Have you ever seen these fields in person? The growing cycle of the flax plant is very short, with only 100 days between sowing and harvesting. The farmer typically sows his seeds in the spring, around April. The pictures you see here in this blog are from early May, when the plant really started to burgeon. The flax plant comes a bit later in June, which you’ll also see pictured below. A flax plant of a nice quality has a height of about one or two metre. Don’t these photos take your breath away?
