Our Story

Our Story

Green Hills Nursery was started in 2006 by the Hernandez brothers.

Ruben and Jesus Hernandez entered their nursery experience back in 1993 working for Monrovia Nursery (One of the most respected wholesale nurseries in the US) in their Visalia, Ca location.

After learning all the phases of plant production, Ruben and Jesus got together with their younger brother Rigo Hernandez to start Green Hills Nursery. Rigo, who after working and doing an internship program at Monrovia, attended Fresno State and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Plant Science (Horticulture Option).

Together, we transformed an empty 13-acre parcel into our growing grounds in Orosi, Ca. We have put together a team of dedicated, experienced hard-working craftsmen who take pride in our work.

Green Hills Nursery grows most of our plants ourselves from vegetative cutting and seeds. Thanks to our success and the demand from our customers, Green Hills Nursery opened its current retail location in Fresno, Ca in 2015.

Our current team has over 100 years of combined experience from plant propagation, production and sales.

Why we what we do


We love watching seeds or cuttings transform into beautiful plants and trees that will serve a purpose for our friends, neighbors and clients.
