Weed, Disease and Pest Control

Solutions to your pest and weed problems.

Weeding by hand may be an option, however weeds can spread quickly and this time consuming method may not make sense.

Quite often your garden will thrive in complete harmony, but occasionally the balance will be disrupted and you must intervene.  You wouldn’t want all your hard work to go to waste.  At this point you will observe, diagnose and select the appropriate methods for control of your pest or weed problem.

Luckily, Glen Echo Nurseries stocks a number of products to thwart these pesky creatures.
