A favorite item on our personal list, we wanted to bring this gem to the program too....
This year we found a better deal by buying the ton and saving money.
are the richest natural "fertilizer"* known to humans. That's right: as little as a tablespoon of pure worm castings provides enough organic plant nutrients to feed a 6" potted plant for more than two months. Worm castings stimulate plant growth more than any other natural product on the market. Unlike animal manure and artificial fertilizers it is absorbed easily and immediately by plants.
do not just stimulate plant growth: because of its texture, they also enhance the ability of your soil to retain water and inhibit root diseases such as root rot. Best of all - we have selected our source from a local vendor who takes care of her worms in the best way.
*Technically there is no way to guarantee the percentages of nutrient content in worm castings as this is dependent on the food source for each batch.
Apply 1 pound per tree in the planting hole.
Here is a list of benefits of worm castings:
improve soil structure and porosity creating a better plant root environment
increase moisture infiltration and permeability, and reduces bulk density of heavy soils improving moisture infiltration rates, reducing erosion and runoff
improve the moisture holding capacity of light soils reducing water loss and nutrient leaching
supply organic matter
aid the proliferation of soil microbes that benefit plant and flower growth
supply beneficial microorganisms to soils and growing media
encourage vigorous root growth
allow plants to more effectively utilize nutrients
enable soils to retain nutrients longer
contains humus assisting in soil aggregation and making nutrients more available for plant uptake
and finally, high quality worm castings buffer soil pH since they tend to run pH neutral
