Soil Kings is pleased to offer a 5.5-litre pail of worm castings available for pickup or delivery. Worm castings (or worm compost) has been called, “nature’s perfect plant food.” This all-natural, organic soil amendment has 10 times the nutrients of regular compost, including 5 times the nitrate, 7 times the phosphorous, and 3 times the magnesium.
Worm castings should be used in a ratio of 1 part castings to 4 parts soil and will not burn even the most delicate plants. They add moisture retaining capability to soil because they hold 2-3 times their weight in water. Worm castings also aid in soil aeration and provide beneficial enzymes and microbes to the soil. Worm castings can be used to top dress lawns, trees, shrubs, or house plants. It can also be sprinkled into vegetable or flower planting rows before planting.
