Capogna Flowers cares about the environment and avoids pesticides wherever possible. We utilize Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in our growing operation which incorporates biologicals into the greenhouse. This is the use of beneficial bugs that eliminate or control pests on healthy plants. As an example, helpful lady-bugs eat aphids which are traditional pests in gardens and greenhouses. Consequently, you take home a healthy plant grown a friendlier way.
And while you’re here at Capogna’s, make sure you ask about our drought-tolerant plants which require a minimum amount of water. These plants will reduce water use for the consumers who wish to minimize their environmental footprint.
We also carry a full line of vegetable and herbs to compliment the growing trend of fresh home gardens. Growing your own vegetables results in less shipping to grocery stores, which is a large contribution to environmental damage. The more this trend grows the more positive impact it will have on our environment. Having your own garden also allows you to compost these materials providing you with a healthier soil next year.
