We don't eat flowers so why does organic matter? Did you know that bees, birds and butterflies are in danger because of systemic pesticides used in conventional (flower) farming? They collect pollen, eat seeds and drink the water that is contaminated with pesticide runoff. Even if you don't spray in your own garden, the seeds and bulbs you plant often have these pesticidrs hidden in them. Recent studies show that most conventional flowers, seeds and bulbs are treated with bee killing pesticides. We started EcoTulips because we believe pesticides don’t belong in our gardens where our children play and bees pollinate.

Most people don’t realize that the pesticides used to grow flowers are just as dangerous as the ones used on our food and make it back to us one way or another. Certified organic bulbs are grown in healthy soil without harmful pesticides. We are choosing to change the world for the better one bulb at a time.
We are incredibly proud to be featured in Organic Gardening Magazine (Now Rodale's Organic Life). The article "Meet the New Organic Tulips" was part of their Oct/Nov 2014 edition. Click on the pictures below to read the complete article.
