Worm castings, also known as vermicast, contain water-soluble nutrients that greatly enhance soil conditioning. Our superior quality worm castings use only African nightcrawlers, raised in organic bedding with no toxic materials. Richer in many nutrients than compost produced by other methods, worm castings are also rich in microbial life, which convert nutrients already available in the soil into plant-ready forms. Unlike other compost, worm castings also contain worm mucus, which helps prevent nutrients from washing away with the first watering and holds moisture better than plain soil.
PH BALANCED AT 6.2 - 6.7.
GREAT FOR ADDING NUTRIENTS TO DEPLETED SOILS.
DESIGNED TO IMPROVE PHYSICAL STRUCTURE OF SOIL.
EXCELLENT FOR USE IN COMPOST TEA!!!
NEW LAWNS: put 4”–6” of compost on the soil and till to a depth of 5”–8”. Existing Lawns: apply a thin layer up to a 1/4” of fine compost on the lawn and water it in well.
FILL IN PATCHES: Create a mixture of 30% compost, 60% topsoil, 10% grass seed. Spread a 2”–4” layer over the patch and water thoroughly.
GARDENS: Add compost to your garden each year in spring or early summer, before planting. Till the soil to a depth of 5”–10”, then apply 4” of compost on top and till once more to mix. Throughout the growing season, add a sprinkle of compost mixed with soil as a top layer.
TREES AND SHRUBS: Mix compost with soil—dug from the hole—for planting a tree or shrub. Use a mixture of 1/3 compost to 2/3 soil. Use this mixture to fill the bottom of the hole, around the root ball and up to the base of the stem, then water with Vital Earth’s BioPak.
