Greenhouse entrance

In the heart of every greenhouse, amidst the warm, humid embrace of thriving foliage, lies a battleground unseen by the untrained eye—a constant struggle against pests that threaten the very essence of cultivation. For decades, the go-to solution has been chemical pest management, a double-edged sword that, while effective, bears the weight of environmental concerns and consumer preferences.

But times are changing, and so too are the paradigms of horticultural stewardship. In the ever-evolving landscape of sustainability, VanVliet Greenhouses – Plant Based BioSolutions – stands as a beacon of innovation, championing a shift towards environmentally friendly, holistic pest management solutions.
Enter the unsung heroes of our greenhouse ecosystem: banker plants. These humble guardians provide sanctuary to beneficial insects, nature’s own army against the encroaching hordes of pests. With a carefully curated selection including mullein, cereal plants, purple flash pepper and alyssum, our banker plant system not only fosters biodiversity but also heralds a new era of pest control—one that mitigates chemical dependency and safeguards against the looming specter of pesticide resistance.
At VanVliet Greenhouses, our commitment extends beyond our own cultivation endeavors. We offer our banker plants to fellow growers, empowering them to cultivate their own bio programs and embark on a journey towards sustainable agriculture. Whether you’re seeking to bolster your stock of banker plants or embarking on the noble quest of building your own bio control arsenal, we invite you to join us in this crusade for a greener, healthier tomorrow.
