Had to share this great blog post by Genevieve @ North Coast Gardening: Buying Bee-Friendly Plants: Neonicotinoid-Free Nurseries, Growers, and Seed Sources. She compiled a list of growers, seed suppliers and nurseries that do not use bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides. She also includes a few companies still using “neonics”, but gives them an opportunity to explain why and under what circumstances.
As someone who’s opening a small garden center that will focus on environmentally-friendly gardening products and practices, it’s great to see this kind of post and I appreciate the time Genevieve spent compiling this useful list! It’ll come in very handy with customers as well.
