Spring Blooming Bulbs from Van Engelen, Inc.

It’s time to start getting all those spring blooming bulbs in the ground!

As many of you know, every autumn we plant thousands and thousands of bulbs at my Bedford, New York farm. A good number of them are from one of my favorite sources, Van Engelen Inc., a wholesale family-run flower bulb business located in Bantam, Connecticut. Van Engelen and its sister company, John Scheepers, are overseen by Jo-Anne van den Berg-Ohms, the daughter of Jan S. Ohms, who acquired both businesses and developed them into what they are today. This week, we visited Van Engelen, Inc. to pick up our order and to learn a little more about this amazing facility.
