There are places named Manston in Kent, Dorset and Leeds, and you could have arrived here in your search for injury solicitors Manston from any of those. All towns have green open spaces or parks, lighting up the surrounding green with colour. Formal landscaping usually includes seasonal stock favourites, including pansies, primroses, astilbe, and small shrubs such as roses, cistus and lavender. Bulbs, especially tulips, are important flowers in the colour plan for parkland beds.
When the bulb bubble burst
The tulip plant has its centre of diversity (the highest number of genetic variations) and possibly centre of origin in the Hindu Kush and other parts of Asia. It was introduced to Europe by an ambassador of Ferdinand 1, Emperor of Austria. In the mid-1500s, it was discovered the tulip adapted well to the climate of Holland, and its popularity grew fast. A brisk trade in tulip bulbs grew, as wealthy merchants demanded them for the landscaped gardens of their newly-built mansions. Demand for rare varieties exploded because of the number of years taken to produce stock, and a tulip bubble was created on the stock market.
The French joined the game, and by 1634, demand for tulip bulbs reached its peak with bulbs exchanging hands for hundreds of Dutch guilders. The Dutch devised a Futures Market to deal in forthcoming crops. By 1637, futures trading had made tulips the fourth biggest export commodity in Holland, although no actual bulbs changed hands. The trade ceased abruptly when traders in Haarlem failed to show up to an auction, possibly because the bubonic plague had arrived in the city, and the market crashed.
The mass hysteria of crowds and its relevance to stock trading was first discussed by Charles Mckay, a Scottish journalist, in his book The Madness of Crowds.
