Worm compost (also known as worm castings) is an excellent fertilizer and soil amendment. Like compost tea, worm castings feeds both the plants and the soil. It is an all-natural & organic product that has been demonstrated to improve soil microbial activity, improve soil structure and tilth, conserve water, increase drought resistance, and improve overall health of plants. Worm castings are also an effective way to reduce damage by white flies, aphids and spider mites & any pest that feeds on plant juices. According to recent studies, applying worm compost to the soil around your plants increases the production of a certain enzyme that is offensive to these insects. In addition, because many plant pests seek out plants that are out of balance (such as those artificially fed with liquid fertilizers that can create a nutrient imbalance), worm compost can prevent your garden or houseplants from attracting nuisance pests. Worm compost is a great source of balanced calcium, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphates and potash.

Worm castings may be used as a top dressing (that is, applied directly to the soil in a 1/2 inch to 1 inch layer). When you water, the nutrients filter down to the roots of your plants. For potted plants, use use about 1/3 castings to 2/3 potting soil (new or repotting). Yes, you just place it right along side your plants. Alternatively, you can dig it into the soil for plants that are being transplanted or when preparing garden beds. For more information, see US Composting council's Fact sheet. The fact sheet presents the benefts and how to's for composting.
