Worm castings are produced by the breakdown of organic matter by earthworms. They are odorless, pet and child friendly, and very easy to use. They aid in immediate plant growth because they contain thousands of beneficial microorganisms and available nutrients. Because they are purely organic, they will not burn plants the way that man-made fertilizer can. Pure and simple, the way nature intended it.
No perfumes or scents added or chemically removed. The organic matter consumed by the worm is changed both physically and chemically by the worms digestive tract and is actually homogenized. At any concentration, even the most Delicate seed or bedding plant is safe. This means no fear or problems caused by over-use or misuse.
Castings consist of thousands of durable cylindrical shaped pellets that resist packing and keep soil loose. This allows oxygen to permeate and remain in the root zone where it is vitally needed. The drainage is improved by this non-packed environment.
These free living nitrogen fixing bacteria promote healthy "living" soil that provides an optimum growth environment. Castings conatin "Auxins and Cytokinins", which are growth hormones for bigger and more fibrous plant roots. roots can growth fast, full, and fibrous. The trace elements combined with its structure and high microbial activity allow it to out perform what is expected from a low analysis (NPK) fertilizer.
All of these elements working together allow our worm castings to
dramatically exceed expectations! For more information on how to use worm castings in your garden please click here to be directed to our blog post about worm castings.
