About

History

Darvonda Nurseries began doing business in 1975, starting out as a 10,000 square foot glass greenhouse producing tropical indoor potted plants.  In 1987, Byron Jansen, son of the owner Peter Jansen, began running the operation, focusing on indoor flowering plant production.  In 1991, Byron took over complete control of the company upon the retirement of Peter Jansen. In 2015, Byron’s son Lawrence took over as CEO.

The greenhouse facilities have since grown to include 4 different locations including 34 acres of glass and plastic growing space as well as 20 acres of outdoor production area.  The company has focused its efforts on offering flowering annuals, hanging baskets and indoor potted plants that are not marketed simply as a commodity.  Instead, Darvonda uses their creative design sense to develop unique product offerings on a per customer basis.

Leveraging our connections throughout the Orient, coupled with a network of top-notch partner growers, Darvonda is able to offer exclusive design programs to our customers.
