 Benno and Klazina Dobbe

Benno and Klazina Dobbe, founders
of Holland America Bulb Farms, Inc.,
immigrated to the United States in
1980 with their three young children.
They discovered beautiful Woodland,
Washington was the perfect location
to establish their bulb farm. They
started growing and importing tulips,
daffodils, irises, and lilies.

While starting with a small operation, Benno's vision has always been

"With quality the sky is the limit"

 This philosophy has guided him to the present time, where the company has an international presence, importing bulbs mainly from the Netherlands and growing flowers in Woodland and California. A strong resolve to continually improve the business, lead by example and focus on quality over quantity keeps Holland America strong, innovative and at the top of its game, even during a recession. - Vancouver Business Journal, June 2009.


Today Benno and family operate several international companies:

Instant Gardenign

Holland America Instant Gardening, Woodland, WA Many people think about flowering bulbs in the spring when they bloom. Normally these bulbs need to be planted in the fall. However, for the busy garden lovers, we offer a perfect alternative. We plant them for you, force them, and make sure they bloom just in time for spring. This allows you to take the pots home and enjoy the results without all that work and time. These flowering pots may be enjoyed indoors or outdoors.


The Dobbe Family along with the company staff invite you to join us in April to celebrate the coming of Spring at our annual Woodland Tulip Festival
