When earthworms consume organic material in the soil, they digest and expel small pellets called “castings.” These castings are extremely high in nutrients and growth hormones, are water-soluble, and serve as a natural fertilizer for plants.
Any and all! Whether it be indoor or outdoor, seeds or established plants, lawns or trees, all plants can benefit from castings. Even the most delicate and phosphate-sensitive plants will not be harmed by castings.
Not at all. Worm castings are natural and do not have the harmful burning or polluting effects that chemical fertilizers and pesticides do. Castings can be applied to the most sensitive of plants.
There is no such thing as too many worm castings! Castings do not burn plants when used in excess and are never harmful. See How to Use Worm Castings for more information on recommended quantities.
Absolutely! Worm castings are non-toxic and perfectly safe to handle.
Castings are long lasting! While they are absorbed almost instantly, the release process is slow. You need not reapply castings for 1-2 months after you do so initially.
Nope! Castings are naturally odor-free, with no processing or additives, unlike other odor-free fertilizers. They are comfortable to handle, reminiscent only of rich, healthy soil.
