Tree Frogs on the Fall Mums
We manage our greenhouse operation without toxic pesticides making our greenhouses prime habitat for many interesting visitors. We are often surprised by a variety of creatures that join us in our endeavor. Humming birds enjoy our blooming native cardinal flowers. Frogs and toads thrive in the greenhouse environment as well. We also release large numbers of beneficial insects into the greenhouses. These insects thrive in their new pesticide-free home and then prey upon any pest-insects that may invade the growing area.
