No Neonics. Zip. Zilch. Nada. 

And why it matters.


Neonicotinoids (neonics) have been implicated in the decline of bees and birds. Their impact may be worse than that of DDT - YIKES! That's why we use absolutely no neonics at Wit's End Gardens. That way hungry bees and birds can be happy and healthy.
