Worm castings 5-gallon bags


Worm castings are a highly desired form of organic, natural fertilizer. Worms naturally produce this rich manure as they digest their food, leaving behind nutrients that plants need. Castings are high in nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, calcium and magnesium. They also provide soil with microorganisms and helpful bacteria and have been known to reduce the amount of heavy metal found in soil. Worm compost has a rich, pleasing odor and helps aerate the soil. Like most organic fertilizers, worm compost and its nutrients wash away and deplete over time, but reapplication is easy. Unlike other manures or fertilizers, worm castings can be applied directly to the soil with no worry of damaging soil structure or "burning" plant roots or leaves. They can be added at any time throughout the growing process, either as a side dressing later in the season or pre-season by incorporating it throughout the garden area. Worm castings are collected through a process called vermicomposting. Though it is possible to manage vermicompost in the home, most gardeners choose to buy worm castings from nurseries or other garden suppliers. These castings are cleaner, better aged and tend to have a higher balance of nutrients than homemade vermicompost.
