How to use Wormganix worm castings?
Wormganix is different to most competing brands, the majority of which are imported and in effect dead when you use them, so you don’t need to use as much of the Wormganix compared to other brands. Always mix with your soil or compost because you are using the worm castings as a fertiliser or a soil conditioner. The 10% Rule will serve you well with Wormganix or to put another way, 1-part Wormganix to 9-parts soil or compost.
House Plants / Cacti / Hanging Baskets
The general rule is to top dress your pots, the watering of the plant then leaches the goodness into the compost, a small handful every month should suffice.
Existing Plants /Shrubs and Trees (including Ericaceous)
Mix or dig in generous handfuls around the base, or Top Dress and then repeat regularly throughout the growing season.
If sowing or planting in rows, lightly cover the entire row before covering with compost. Some types of vegetables prefer a side dressing, meaning dug out rows of covered worm castings adjacent to the plants. Most growers use worm castings at a higher ratio in vegetable plots, up to 25%
but we would always recommend little and often.
Propagation /Potting on/Seedlings
You can line the base of your smaller pots or mix into your compost, but it is not recommended to plant or sow directly into pure worm castings due to the high NPK values.
This is perfect for your Compost tea. Add your worm castings to a porous bag of your choosing and tie the end of the bag. Place the bag of castings in your container of water and leave overnight. In the morning the water should be light brown and that water is your worm tea.
