I was recommended to this nursery by someone who cultivates monarch butterflies like I do. I contacted Accent Trees and Nursery prior to visiting to make sure their milkweed plants did not have pesticides on them because they were going to be used as food for my monarch butterfly caterpillars.

Monarch caterpillars only eat milkweed and it can't have anything on it or it will kill the caterpillars. The owner responded to my email and said they don't use pesticides. Their website is all about butterflies and butterfly gardening and their webpage has a butterfly house prominently displayed on the main page. I visited this nursery twice the last week in February and spent approximately $75 on milkweed plants.

On Thursday night I started using the plants as caterpillar food and by the end of the weekend my caterpillars were dead. I contacted the owner on Monday, less than a week since purchasing her product, and she was nasty and rude and told me to "go to h e l l in a hand basket" She continued to maintain her plants were pesticide free yet admitted they came from some outside vendor. The plants are not grown on the premises and obviously something is wrong with them if they are killing the caterpillars, yet she has the audacity to continue to say they are pesticide free. She refused to refund or replace and was as obnoxious as could be.

The whole point of going to an independent nursery and spending more is so you know where the plants came from. Lowe's and Home Depot sell milkweed for less money, but they are known to have pesticides on them because they are commercially grown in large industrial nurseries.

The monarch population is down significantly this year due to all the bad winter storms and cold snaps. It was a huge loss to lose these caterpillars that will never be butterflies. This nursery pays lip service to butterflies but they sell the same toxic plants you can buy cheaper someplace else. Owner was nasty and unapologetic. It is insult to injury to be charged for plants that killed my caterpillars. The only reason I bought the plants was to feed the caterpillars and now they are dead and I am out the caterpillars and the money. This is a horrible, horrible business. I am all for supporting small independently run nurseries, but this one is awful and a waste of money. They do not stand behind their merchandise.

I was referred to this nursery as a butterfly friendly nursery. Before visiting I sent an email to make sure their milkweed plants did not have pesticides on them. This is vital as milkweed is the only food source for monarch caterpillars,
