Quality Green Specialists is located at 335 W. Michigan Ave. Come to visit us for the finest Nursery Plants (including a big selection of fruiting plants), the best organic-based fertilizers, OMRI listed organic AZOMITE plant food, premium Compost, and organic Potting Soil: We at Quality Green meet your planting & horticultural needs with the finest plants and products with high standards of excellence. We provide guidance, testing, and products for gardeners and farmers, which reduces the need for toxic chemical fertilizers & pesticides. We recommend safe, effective ways to control diseases, insects, and other pests. We sell natural & organic products and recommend techniques that are sustainable and cost effective. We take pride in our highly accurate, comprehensive soil, tissue, and water testing which improves results and lowers input costs for gardens, landscapes, lawns and farms. Based on our in-depth testing, you will know exactly what is deficient and should be supplemented, as well as all the things that are sufficient (or excessive) and should not be amended. With this precise knowledge and guidance, you will save lots of money over time. Almost all soils are chronically deficient in available silicon and also many (especially sandy soils) are extremely low in the available carbon (organic matter that has been digested to humic & bio-available fulvic acid). That is why we emphasize the application of fertilizers, not only with high quality N-P-K & other fertilizer minerals, but also bio- available carbon as fulvic acid and AZOMITE® volcanic mineralizer high in available silicon dioxide plus dozens of essential & beneficial micronutrients. The bottom line: We have the highest quality materials, minerals and specialty fertilizer blends that meet the most demanding nutritional needs for growing a wide variety of plants and crops. Our products are unexcelled in promoting an abundant population of healthy, beneficial soil microbial life, a key reason our products work so well. A healthy soil with healthy beneficial and mineralizing microbes digests essential minerals and releases ionic forms that are actually taken up by plants. Not only that, healthy soil is fully packed with beneficial microbes which out-compete pathogens and other undesirable microbes. We proved this to be true when we performed two trials on fields with nematode-sensitive tomatoes and Pittosporum. Starting with a high population of parasitic nematodes, our testing-based organic and natural nutritional supplements eliminated all parasitic nematodes in the Pittosporum field and found only one nematode in the tomato field. This was verified independently by two different laboratories. That is why we are convinced that quality organic and natural fertilizers & amendments promoting healthy soil with healthy microbial life is the answer. Cheap, salty, heavy-metal contaminated fertilizers lacking all essential minerals & even some minerals locked-up unavailable forms (causing a very low population of mineralizing bacteria & other beneficial microbes) simply cannot work very well and require frequent applications of harmful pesticides to obtain satisfactory results. With our help, you will enjoy sustainable, healthy results through the use of quality organic-based materials that build the soil and microbes, resulting in the most amazing plants and crops that keep improving year after year.
Quality Green recommends natural, organic products and practices that work better in every way than chemical, high salt index programs, including long-term sustainability and greater economic returns. We focus on the utilization of naturally mined minerals and plant-based organics for mineral deficient or stressed soils (generally with both excesses & deficiencies of minerals and low in mineralizing & other beneficial microbial life). Our research-based natural fertilizers, customized to your situation with our comprehensive soil & plant tissue testing, improve the health of your soil and ensures the production of high-quality plants and livestock. We have years of education and training to give you precise and accurate recommendations. Owner Dana Venrick has expertise in the field of Agriculture and Horticulture.
