ORGANIC FERTILIZER - EARTHWORM CASTINGS
Gardeners have known for years that adding compost and manure to their soil results in better plants.
Why the excitement over WORM CASTINGS? Research shows that compared to the soil itself, worm castings are definitely higher in bacteria and organic matter, total and nitrate nitrogen, exchangeable calcium and magnesium, available phosphorus and potassium, pH and percentage base saturation and cation exchange capacity.
In other words, worm castings are a sterile, odorless means to condition your soil and an organic and natural way to provide your plants with the nutrients they need, when they need them. Scientists have shown that worm castings work extremely well in promoting lush plant growth, but to this day, they still are not exactly sure why Earthworm castings work as well as they do. It just goes to show that Mother Nature knows best.
