We do not use chemical insecticides on herb and vegetable plants in our greenhouses.

We release beneficial insects to manage aphids in Greenhouse 5, where we keep the vegetables and culinary herbs. It’s not only safer; it’s ultimately more sustainable than conventional chemical pest control. This is a natural process that takes some time to establish, so if you've found aphids on your recent purchases, don't worry. It's part of the process.

Aphids emerge earlier in the season than their predators, so you’ll probably see some aphids on your plants right now. Be assured that where there are aphids, the beneficials will soon follow to feed on the pests and bring the system into balance. The process takes a little bit of time to happen naturally, but there’s no hurry, and the results are well worth it.

In the meantime, if you find aphids on your plants, here are some things you can do...

Now open Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

New Pet Policy

Updated for 2024

For years, we’ve happily welcomed dogs on leashes. Over time, with more and more dogs visiting Petree’s, we’ve come to a point where it’s no longer safe to maintain this open-pet-door policy.

We love dogs, and we also know that dogs will be dogs. This change is not the fault of any Petree’s visitor, human or canine. It is strictly for the safety of our customers and our furry friends.

ADA-qualified service animals are still allowed in all of our public areas.

We have designated an area for customers to walk their pet dogs. If your dog is with you and needs a walk, please check in (without your dog) at the counter in Greenhouse 1 for access to this area. All dogs must be kept on leash while at Petree’s.
