Growing Green Earthworm Castings is an all-purpose natural fertilizer that comes to you straight from nature with no alterations whatsoever. Worm castings are a soil conditioner that is of unsurpassed fertility. Because it has an abundance of readily available non-burning nutrients, only a little needs to be used in your plant holes or seed furrows. At any concentration, even the most delicate seed or bedding plant is safe. This means no fear of overuse or misuse.
Worm castings go much further and produce results that are simply far superior to those of conventional manures, compost or other organic fertilizers. The organic matter consumed by the worms is changed physically by the worm’s digestive tract and is also homogenized. Nutrients, including minerals and trace elements, are reduced to their most useable form.
Chemical fertilizers usually provide only available synthetic nutrients, much of which are quickly lost into the soil with watering. Chemical fertilizers are most often detrimental to soil microbiology, by-passing and often destroying much of its beneficial microbial and bacteria activity. At the same time, many of these synthetic nutrients are absorbed into your plants and food. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides used in both farms and gardens have become our country’s leading cause of water pollution.
Castings consist of thousands of durable cylindrically shaped pellets that resist packing and keep the soil loose. This allows oxygen to permeate and remain in the root zone where it is vitally needed. Drainage is also improved by this non-packed environment. This means microbial and bacteria activity is “free living”. Nitrogen-fixing bacteria promote healthy “living” soil that provides an optimum growth environment.
Worm castings manure can be applied as a top dressing, side dressing, or can be worked into the soil. Try it once and you’ll see definite differences in the yield, size, health and colour of your fruits, vegetables, flowers, houseplants, lawns and more. Try it once, we guarantee you will love it.
