We even use tiny wasps to take care of aphids, and these predatory mites eliminate harmful thrips!

IN 1988 MARK FOERTMEYER ESTABLISHED FOERTMEYER AND SONS GREENHOUSE WITH THE VISION OF BRINGING PREMIUM FLOWERING PLANTS TO THE CENTRAL OHIO AREA

Our Greenhouse!

  • We use unique, meticulously formulated natural plant-based fertilizers.

Our home is a six acre paradise of greenery sitting on the outskirts of Columbus, where we have been working hard at our craft for 25 years - streamlining not only our efficiency, but actively reducing our environmental footprint.

Let us say hello by checking out the video below!

Going Green

  • We prevent diseases and protect crops safely with biologically-based products.

It is the bounty of the earth that allows us to do what we do - here at Foertmeyer & Sons, we take this idea very seriously, and aspire to adopt every advancement in science that allows us to lessen our impact on the environment. This is why we have, with great deliberation, taken steps to implement all those clever methods that allow us to work with nature in stead of against it! We are proud to share with you the industry changing techniques and products we use to stay on the cutting edge of GREEN!

Plant Nutrition

Disease Control

Insect Control

  • We use superior, biologically based insecticides - many of which utilize living fungi as their active component (these are called Mycoinsecticides!)

We also employ precision watering techniques that save allow us to save on water waste and fertilizer run off. Not only do hoses water each individual plant directly, but any water not absorbed by the plant and soil is recaptured and recirculated!

These ‘biologicals’ use living organisms to colonize and combat harmful diseases
