Inspiring Northern Gardeners Since 1985
Our Pest/Disease Control Philosophy
Our rich, rural nursery environment is teeming with life: toads, birds, bees, beneficial insects and dozens of other critters. And we want to keep it that way.
In our greenhouses, we use preventative measures wherever possible. This includes closely inspecting and monitoring plant stock, keeping the greenhouses clean, and selecting pest/disease resistant stock. Should the preventative measures fail, we employ biological pests (such as parasitic wasps, midges, or ladybugs) or gentle insecticides to manage pest problems. This approach is known as Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
