No Wooden Shoes Required
There’s truth in the Hans Christian Anderson quote, “Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower,” – the only exception is that there’s nothing little about the family-owned, Leo Berbee Bulb Co. that originated in Holland. For more than 47 years the Berbee family has been sharing the beauty of their trade by cultivating and distributing millions of bulbs across the U.S. and beyond. Among their esteemed customer list is the Columbus Zoo, U.S. Botanic Garden, The Pentagon, and the National Parks Service! Learn, discover, and take home a pack of inspiration for your own garden.
