Our History

At Westland Greenhouses our roots are strong.  Over the last twenty years the greenhouse has transformed from a small and unique garden centre to the largest destination garden centre on the shores of Lake Huron, Ontario.

In 2000 the VanAdrichem family immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands and purchased the Grand Bend property, which was originally the greenhouse Klein Westland.  Paul and Anita VanAdrichem both growers’ children, knew the challenges they faced in starting a retail garden centre and wholesale business in Canada.  Facing these challenges head on they opened the doors to their new facility on October 17, 2000.
