Most of the plants grown at White Post Farms are started from seeds, plugs, and cuttings back in January. That’s right, when everyone is shoveling snow, we’re thinking about plants…and a lot of them! We currently grow 3 acres of spring annuals and perennials from start to the finished container. They are then loaded onto carts and rolled right up to the plant department in our Garden Center.
As environmental stewards and leaders in the community, we practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as part of our commitment to responsible growing. IPM is an effective approach to pest management that relies on common-sense farming practices and minimally invasive pest control methods. Our IPM-trained staff members regularly scout our growing facility for hot spots where bug populations are beyond acceptable. When a problem is identified, they take immediate and appropriate measures. Targeted practices such as this cut down on the use of pesticides because we only apply chemicals, when necessary, in specified amounts, thereby reducing the impact we have on our environment.
So don’t miss this opportunity to purchase locally and responsibly grown plant material. Stop by today and check out our full selection of proven winners, select annuals, and simply beautiful plant collections.
