Earth Friendly Gardening – Wilson’s Garden Center
Wilson’s is blessed to be part of the “Green Industry”. We grow life enhancing plants that add oxygen to the atmosphere and filter pollutants in our environment. These plants add beauty and serenity to our lives. We care about our community and the impact our business has on our planet. We are looking for ways to go “greener” yet.
Here are few steps we are taking:
Wilson’s taking control of its trash. Wasting less, reusing more, and recycling often is our new mantra.
Reusing our large nursery pots and production trays has always been in fashion at Wilson’s. Beginning in fall 08’ we began
recycling all of our plastic pots trays and water bottles. Everything goes from our tiny 2 inch to our monster 14-inch pots. Thanks to
Phoenix Recycling, we are reducing the amount of waste we contribute to the area landfills.
- Rain barrels, compost bins and many products made from renewable resources are now available at Wilson’s. Use organically derived plastic weed cloth, recycled paper weed barriers and garden gloves made from renewable bamboo in your quest to green up your garden.
A NEW TAKE ON AN OLD WAY…Plants
aren’t the only things
GREENING UP at Wilson’s. We
are making a switch from synthetic fertilizers in the
production of most our annuals, vegetables and perennials.
