Earthworm castings

Posted by Tim Herron on March 18, 2014 at 11:35 AM

Worm castings 

Worm castings add vital nutrients to your soil like:

  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Nitrogen
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Sulfur

Being naturally organic, you can grow in confidence that your “green” integrity is intact and that you are providing the best quality product for your clients.

According to some sources, by adding worm castings to your soil you will increase plant growth by up to 20% and can see a 150% increase in root mass! Try adding 1 part of worm castings to 9 parts of soil and see how your plants respond. You may need to change your ratio, but 9:1 is a good start.

Consider using worm castings as a fertilizer as well. By steeping it in warm water for several days, you can make compost tea (worm tea).  The resulting liquid fertilizer will give your plants a much-needed boost and help them get through those troubling seasons.
