It’s time for tulips! Did you know that we have 4 greenhouses where our grower, Tim, will grow over 15,000 premium quality tulips unlike any available on the local market? Tim has fine-tuned the program since we started 7 years ago.
We start in late fall planting, with our 1st harvest usually in January. This year due to warm/sunny conditions we are ahead of schedule.
We start with a special planting mix that we transfer into bulb growing trays. The tulips are planted by hand into the trays and then kept in a cool greenhouse (about 40 degrees) so they form a substantial root system. When we are ready to force the bulbs, we transfer them to a warmer greenhouse to finish them.
We cut them by hand when they start to show color and then hydrate them using a solution developed by dutch bulb growers. After they are bundled, we cool them in our coolers and offer them for sale. Sometimes a customer may ask for a particular color not in the display case and we can walk them into the greenhouse where they can hand-select their color.
We grow several varieties that are colorful, long-lasting, and impressive.
Our customers ask for our own homegrown tulips all year because they have grown to appreciate the difference in quality. Our tulips last longer because they are hand-cut and available for purchase the same day. Cutting out up to a week of transportation and holding from conventional sources.
