Don't sell plants treated with bee-harming pesticides
Homebase says it intends to end the sale of plants grown that have been treated with neonicotinoid-based pesticides by the end of 2018.
They said: "We have been working closely with our suppliers and seeking advice from other stakeholders about the use of neonicotinoids and we have committed to stop using these insecticides on garden plants, as well as removing neonicotinoid-based garden care products from sale by the end of 2018."
