Brightwood, VA (PRWEB) September 15, 2011
EcoTulips, the only supplier of organic flower bulbs in the U.S., is pleased to announce that 14 varieties of its organic tulip, muscari (grape hyacinth) and daffodil bulbs are now for sale at all Whole Foods Market Mid-Atlantic stores in time for fall planting. This is the first time organic flower bulbs have been sold in a major U.S. chain store.
In addition, EcoTulips has partnered with Pennsylvania-based Rodale Institute to provide more than 20,000 organic bulbs for the research organization’s first organic tulip festival in spring, 2012. EcoTulips recently joined Rodale’s “Your 2 Cents” program to help fund future organic farmers and farming in the U.S. For every bag of organic bulbs sold, EcoTulips donates two cents to the program. Co-owners Jeroen and Keriann Koeman will participate in Rodale’s third annual Organic Apple Festival September 17, selling their bulbs at the “Your 2 Cents” booth. The bulbs will also be for sale at Rodale’s store throughout the fall planting season.
EcoTulips will then be attending the Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore September 22-24 at which it is donating organic tulip bulbs as centerpieces for the Organic Trade Association dinner September 21 which the Koemans will also attend.
EcoTulips’s has just introduced sales of botanical tulips, hyacinth, and fritallaria meleagris (Guinea-hen Flower) bulbs in addition to its wide selection of organic tulip, daffodil, crocus, and muscari. All are available for both wholesale and retail purchase at http://www.EcoTulips.com. The ‘botanical tulips’ are sure to please as they naturalize, coming back year after year.
EcoTulips is the only U.S. company offering organic flower bulbs as part of an eco-friendly fundraiser program. This program has proven to be so popular among schools, service clubs, churches, and other non-profits that EcoTulips is already taking orders for 2012!
