- Every Day is Earth Day! We are a neonicotinoid free nursery. This is so important in today’s world and we try to save the bees and be as pollinator friendly as possible!

- We use beneficial organisms to control pests at Little Prince. Our Head Grower, Mike Hicks, is in charge of this program. He feels that it’s better for the plants, better for you, and better for the world. When you buy one of our plants, you are also introducing beneficial organisms to your garden, where they continue to fight the good fight against spider mites, aphids, whiteflies and other pests. Pretty cool, huh?

- UNPACK. Carefully unwrap your plants. Remove the excelsior wood wool that we use to help the soil stay in the pot during transit. Damaged foliage can happen during shipping. Don’t worry, the healthy root system will promote new growth.
- WATER. Check the soil. Water only if the soil is mostly dry. Over-watering is one of the most common mistakes! However, all plants, including drought-tolerant plants, need water. When it is time to water, don’t be shy … water thoroughly.
- READ THE TAG. Right plant + right place = happy plants! Your plant will live its best life if you meet its basic soil, light and water requirements. For example, don’t put plants in full sun if they want to be in the shade.
- TIME TO PLANT? Plant into a permanent location at your convenience. This could be in your garden or in a pot on your kitchen windowsill. Your plants will survive in the original containers for several months.
- LOVE. Plants need continued love and care. Give them the required light, water, soil and periodic fertilizer for the happiest plants. Do you name your plants like we do?
