Inside Bloomia's 42-acre warehouse facility, located in King George, Virginia, are millions of tulips grown in different times of the year which will be shipped to different retailers and stores like your local Wegmans, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe's. It is one of the largest indoor tulip production facilities in the country.
“This place used to be a tomato farm, if you can believe that,” says Jansen. “But it already had a greenhouse set up, and I knew as soon as I saw it that it would be perfect.” Apparently, he was right: Bloomia now ships more than 75 million tulips a year.
