Worm Castings Plant Care

Worm Castings are a natural slow release soil builder.
That's because the microbes, occurring naturally in the worm bed, are available to the plant much faster.
As an all natural enhancer it is safer to use to avoid burning from excess chemical fertilizers.

More blossoms, fewer pests. Grow prize-winning roses with nutrient rich worm castings and worm tea.

For potted roses, work about a tablespoon of worm castings into the top layer of soil and water lightly.

Broadcast castings with a cup over the entire garden and water in. Use about 1/2 cup per plant.

Planting Roses:

Pour 4 cups of castings into soil below the surface for each plant and cover with soil. Surround newly dug hole with mixture of 1 part castings to 3 parts potting soil

Broadcast worm castings by hand or with a spreader over the entire lawn and rake in. You may also mix the castings with topsoil before seeding. Apply 10 lbs. per 100 sq. ft.

Work lightly into soil, mix in grass seed and water well.

Both worms castings and worm tea attack nematodes in the yard.


Orchid gcbd9d1c0c 1920
Orchids need very little fertilizer and too much will cause more damage than too little. Orchids have very sensitive roots, but worm castings being organic cannot burn the orchid's sensitive roots.

Add worm castings directly into the potting medium. If there is no soil, use a spray with worm tea.

The microbes will better enable a plant to absorb the nutrients present. 

Fruit Trees

Worm Castings can be sprinkled in a small furrow around the trunk allowing more nutrients to be absorbed by the tree while chemical fertilizers are usually applied at the drip line. Cover with a little dirt and water lightly.
