What Are Worm Castings?
Worm Castings contain a highly active biological mixture of bacteria, enzymes, remnants of plant matter, and earthworm cocoons (while damp). The castings are rich in water-soluble plant nutrients, and contain more than 50% more humus than what is normally found in topsoil. They enhance the ability of your soil to retain water (because of its texture), and inhibit root diseases such as root rot. Our worm castings are inoculated with mycorrhizal fungi to supercharge your soil.
Recommended use: top dress 1/4 to 1/2 cup of pure worm castings per plant. When mixed with potting soil, it needs to be only 10% – 20% on the total mixture. When mixed with water, I use a cup of castings to a gallon of water and let it steep for about 24 hours and stir the contents several times a day.
$6 per Quart (8-16 applications). Reply with your address and phone to order.
