The early years of bulb farming Pacific Northwest.

While Earle Darst worked for his dad in the bulb business, across the bay at Neil Noorlag’s, Bill Roosen and Hank DeGoede apprenticed in Skagit County.

Hank eventually went into business for himself forming DeGoede Bulb Farms.

Bill Roozen, took advantage of a gentleman’s agreement among growers and sold bulbs that he did not grow, receiving a 10 % DISCOUNT from his boss and other growers in the valley.

After several years of “sales” the local growers terminated the offer to sell bulbs to Roozen and he started growing bulbs of his own.

DeGoede moved to Oregon then back to Skagit Valley.

Roozen expanded his operation to become one of the largest grower in the States.

Darst eventually moved from Whidbey Island to Skagit County then finally back to Whidbey Island.
