Description

Worm Castings from composting worms have been recognized as a natural fertilizer that is packed with nutrients and minerals. Worm castings contains minerals such as concentrated nitrates, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus. Worm castings are also a 100% organic fertilizer that can increase a plant’s yield, protect both soil and plants from diseases, and help the soil retain moisture.

Uses for worm castings

  • When planting new seedlings, dig a handful of castings into the surrounding soil. This supplies nutrients and holds moisture around the developing roots.
  • Castings also make a fantastic liquid fertiliser. “It can be a bit of a messy operation, but it does work.” Mix a handful of castings into a ten litre bucket of water. Pour it through a stocking into a watering can. The stocking catches all the fines and other bits and pieces, leaving you with slurry in what looks like a giant teabag. Add the liquid from the slurry to the mix by squeezing out the stocking into the watering can and apply the liquid to your favourite hungry plants.
  • Mixing up liquid slurry is also a great way to rejuvenate tired potting mix. This is a richer liquid fertiliser brew. Three or four handfuls of castings into a ten litre bucket of water. Pour it into your pot plant and the nutrients gradually settle down into the root zone.
