Our Story

John & Cindy Verbinnen

Cindy and John Verbinnen

Verbinnen’s Nursery was established in the year 2000 when John and Cindy Verbinnen acquired the nursery from Cindy’s father, Henry Groen, who retired from operating Groen’s Nursery Ltd. John and Cindy have over 30 years experience in growing tree and shrub seedlings, having worked in the industry for several decades.

Verbinnen’s Nursery specializes in growing native (indigenous) species of tree and shrub seedlings. Our products are used for naturalization projects, roadside plantings, commercial and residential landscaping and for growing on in larger containers and field production.

We grow about 100,000 field grown seedlings for bare root production, another 100,000 seedlings in plugs and over 150,000 trees and shrubs in containers ranging from a 1 to 15-gallons. We also buy and resell products as necessary to meet the needs of our customers.
