What Are The Benefits?
Worm castings have long been known by farmers and gardeners to produce amazing results when added to their fields and gardens.
Recent scientific studies have shown significant improvement in plant size, blossom quality and color as well as increased yields and higher quality of taste and appearance of fruits and vegetables when worm castings are utilized.
Castings are also effective on lawns, fruit orchards, ornamental trees and shrubs and even herb and succulent gardens.
Pretty much anything that can grow a root will reap the benefits of worm castings.
Why Worm Castings?
As you know, the "grow your own" and "organic" movements are becoming increasingly mainstream and, as a result, more and more farmers and gardeners are seeking a safe, all-natural alternative to the harsh and environmentally dangerous pesticides and chemical fertilizers which are widely used today.
Worm castings fit the bill -- and then some.

Even More Benefits ...
Dr. Verm's Premium Worm Castings Are All Natural - Our worm castings are 100% chemical and additive free. If you don't want harmful chemicals and additives in your plants and food, then worm castings are an excellent alternative organic fertilizer.
Odor Free! Yes Really! - Many organic or manure based fertilizers come with that offensive "smell" ... more like a stench! Luckily, worm castings are naturally odor free. Think of fresh soil or earth, and you get the picture. Trust us, it doesn't stink.
Castings Build Soil Structure - Dr. Verm's Premium Worm Castings enhance the condition of your soil due to their extremely high humus content. Humus, the organic matter at the core of each individual casting, acts like a tiny sponge in the soil. It holds and retains moisture, nutrients, minerals and beneficial microbes to produce an amazing all-in-one soil builder!
Faster Germination Times And Better Root Health - Worms naturally produce castings that are encased in a layer of micro-nutrients and digestive enzymes. These enzymes and nutrients actually aid the plant during the germination and root-growth stages. Plants grown in soil amended with worm castings have shown significantly faster germination time and root strength leading to happier, healthier plants!
Microbiology - Worm castings are full of life! Just like there are live organisms in dry yeast, there are live microorganisms in worm castings. These bacteria, fungi, protozoa and beneficial nematodes all work together to help your plant thrive throughout its life cycle. Microbes also help to solubilize nutrients and minerals in the surrounding soil for better plant uptake.
Worm Castings Will Not Burn Plants - We've all heard the horror stories of some unfortunate gardener who over-fertilized their plants and "burnt" and killed them. This happens due to nitrogen excess and can kill plants overnight. Worm castings simply do not have this problem. Hearkening back to the high humus content, worm castings don't overload your plants with excess minerals and nutrients. Instead, they bind up and then time-release the necessary nutrients when needed by the plant. They really are nature's perfect soil enhancer.
Loaded With Over 60 Trace Minerals And Nutrients - Worm castings are high in trace mineral and nutrient content. Our worms are fed a diverse vegan menu high in essential minerals and nutrients from organic, non-GMO plant material. Theses minerals and nutrients are naturally transferred by the worm into its castings, and finally into your soil. As a result, flower blossoms are much bigger, more bountiful and more colorful - and nutrient density of produce is MUCH higher, giving fruit and veggies MUCH better taste!
