Re: Dill, fennel, butterflies


Learned at an NABA meeting that if a nursery uses systemic 
pesticide/fertilizer then it is in the plant when it is purchased.  Many places here will put a 
sign out stating that they know the grower and that no systemics were used in 
the growing of the butterfly plants.  Others will have signs up stating that 
they cannot guarantee that systemics were not used.    
So even if you don't use pesticides, they could still be in the plant.
