Johan Van Herreweghe
has incorporated the long experience of
four generations in his growing export-nursery. Johan's
great grandfather started the company in the late 1800's.
His father, Willem, was the pioneer, who trekked to Canada
in the early 1950's in search for new customers in Quebec
and Ontario. (At that time obstructive regulations such
as the washing of the roots, were not operative.)
The new name JVH - The Green Line emerged in 1973.
Since 1980 Johan and his wife, Godelieve, visit customers
in Eastern Canada and since 1997 they started to scout the
West Coast and beautiful B.C. They have seen significant
growth in their new BC market.
Every spring and summer Johan sees his customers all over
Europe; he believes personal contact is very important to
sales success. In August he travels throughout Eastern and
Western Canada. The knowledge of many foreign languages
enables him to communicate with most of his customers in
their own mother-tongue.
This is a great asset and is appreciated everywhere.
Today, JVH Nurseries ships plants to different European
countries, Canada, USA, Japan, China, Russia, South Africa,
Middle East, Turkey, Central and Latin America
