Beginnings
Extremely Green started as a local gardening company in the New Hampshire seacoast. We were eager to find customers who wanted alternatives to the traditional approach of using synthetic chemicals to feed plants and control pests, weeds, and diseases in the garden. Fortunately, growing numbers of people are questioning the old practices that were more inclined to achieving fast results than to a thoughtful, cautious stewardship of the biosphere. Our gardening business, and now our web site, tries to connect those people with good, proven organic products and practice.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
In our own business, we've adapted Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques to deal with pests, weeds, and diseases. First we try to use cultural practice to minimize or alleviate problems. Then we use low impact remedies, such as beneficial insects and broad spectrum organic pesticides and insecticides. Only as a last resort would we consider using anything stronger and more toxic. Every treatment is weighed against its potential effect on beneficial insects and microorganisms before we proceed. This approach differs greatly from the traditional "nuke the nuisance" strategy where toxic chemicals often don't distinguish between pests and beneficial life forms.
