Picture

Breaking news! According to Nursery MANAGEMENT magazine, out of concern for pollinators, Home Depot has led the way for big box stores to require their nursery suppliers to label plants treated with neonicotinoid insecticides.

Home Depot’s action represents a major milestone in efforts by pollinator advocates to inform consumers of the systemic pesticides contained in the plants they purchase. It may also bring new meaning to “More Saving. More Doing.”
