commercial nurseries grow millions of plants nearly totally without
sprays. We are advocates of a type of integrated pest management (IPM)
that goes beyond the pests themselves and considers carefully which crop
or garden plant suits a particular site well. For example we use our
different nursery sites and their particular individual advantages very
carefully to increase our range of plants rather than spraying out pests.
In other words we suit the crop to the spot and don't try to do it the
other way around.
