About us

EcoTulips LLC is a family owned business founded in 2009 by Jeroen and Keriann Koeman who live their green lifestyle with their dog Sampson in Brightwood, Virginia.

EcoTulips is the only supplier of certified organic tulip bulbs in the US and is now becoming the only organic tulip grower in the US as well. Their beautiful blooms were featured on the cover of nationally recognized Organic Gardening Magazine in the article  “Meet the NEW Organic Tulips”.

This spring they are trying out Long Island to see if the climate will be good for growing bulbs here in the US in addition to hosting New York's first ever Organic Tulip Festival. There are only a handful of organic tulip growers and they are all in Holland.

Co-founder and Holland native Jeroen Koeman, says “It is my dream to grow bulbs in the United States and Long Island has one of the best climates for growing bulbs on the East Coast.”Koeman will provide these specialty Long Island bulbs for pre-sale at this year’s tulip festival.
You can find these truly bee-friendly bulbs online now at www.ecotulips.com, at the tulip festival or locally on Long Island this fall at Marders in Bridgehampton.

In addition to hosting an annual organic tulip festival, formerly only in Virginia, EcoTulips is offering organic flower bulbs as part of an Eco Friendly Fundraising program. This program has proven to be highly popular among schools, scouting organizations, service clubs, churches, and other non-profits.

Why Organic Flowers?
Organic flower bulbs are grown without the use of pesticides such as harmful systemic insecticides like neonicotinoids that are linked to the decline in the bee, bird and butterfly populations. Organic Bulbs are stronger, brighter and last longer because they are grown as nature intended. Farmers, waterways, flora and fauna including the thousands of microorganisms in the soil are able to flourish creating a healthier ecosystem for us all.

Bees & Bulbs

Have your heard about Colony Collapse Disorder? As explained in the documentary "Vanishing of the Bees" systemic insecticides called "Neonicotinoids" weaken bees immune systems, making populations susceptible to a number of diseases and bacteria. Systemic insecticides are widely used in conventional fruit, vegetables and flower farming. This is one of the reasons why we promote pesticide free organic flower bulbs. Organic bulbs create a healthy, insecticide-free pollen source from early to late spring. Early spring bulb flowers are critical as they are among the first pollen sources for honeybees, and that pollen is used to raise their brood. You can help the bees by planting crocus, tulips, daffodils and other spring flowers.
