Worm castings are the richest soil and plant supplement known. Worm castings stimulate microbial growth more than any other organic material, and are capable of assisting microbes in releasing minerals locked up in the soil to make them available to plants.
Nurturing Nature Worm Castings work opposite of fertilizers in that their effect improves soil tilth with time instead of being rapidly depleted or becoming used up as the growing season progresses.
The most significant benefit of using Nurturing Nature Worm Castings is their proven ability to stimulate the proliferation of beneficial microorganisms (the life) that helps build your soil.
Completely Safe – Worm Castings naturally occur in healthy soils.
They are completely safe for our children, pets, soil and ground water.
Worm castings will not harm our environment in any way.
Increased Disease Suppression – By using Nurturing Nature Worm Castings you stimulate the growth of beneficial organisms in the soil. Beneficial organisms out compete, inhibit and consume bad organisms, creating more stress tolerant plants. The high levels of beneficial bacteria and fungi in Nurturing Nature's Worm Castings help out compete and fight off foliar plant diseases such as black spot, powdery mildew and blight.
Increased Pest Resistance – Pest insects may prey on weak and unhealthy plants. When using Nurturing Nature Worm Castings you develop stronger and more stress resistant plants that are better able to resist attack of pest insects. Worm castings do not harm beneficial insects.
Improve the Soil’s Nutrient Retention – Worm Castings contain millions
of soil microorganisms. Soil microorganisms hold micronutrients in their
bodies; therefore nutrients do not get leached out of the soil. Worm
castings, unlike animal manures and hot composts will not burn your plants.
Make nutrients available to the plant when the plant needs them –
Most of the nutrients that the plant needs, especially nitrogen, are
converted into plant available forms by protozoa. These microorganisms
then recycle nutrients and feed your plants as needed. As such, naturally
occurring immediate, short and long term “slow release” of nutrients occur.
Enhance Beneficial Soil Microbes – Nurturing Nature Worm Castings contain a high amount of organic material to stimulate growth of beneficial bacteria and fungi. Such beneficial bacteria and fungi help to increase root surface area and help break down soil nutrients for rapid uptake by plants.
