Kevin’s guest today is Tim Schipper, founder and owner of the Bridgeport, CT, business Colorblends, a wholesale tulip bulb distributor started in the Netherlands in 1912. Cornelis Schipper, Tim’s Grandfather, brought the company to the United States after World War II, taking Dutch bulbs from customer to customer in his car. Colorblends, part of Schipper & Company, is still family owned, and still selling bulbs to some of the same customers Cornelis visited 50 years ago. What’s new are Colorblends’ pre-blended mixtures of tulips that combine two, three, or more varieties for a jaw-dropping, car-stopping spring display. The best part for me is Colorblends is a big supporter of WPKN Radio. Listen in this afternoon to hear all about flowerbulbs!
