Worms are amazing creatures. Really. They are probably the most overlooked and misunderstood caretakers of our planet. Consider what has been happening in your back yard for thousands and thousands of years. We all know that there is a limited amount of nutrients in the soil. Plants grow and use up significant amounts of available nutrients, then die. The nutrients from the dead plant matter are reintroduced into the soil, but are only a small fraction of what was used up in growing the plants in the first place. Then another plant grows and the cycle repeats itself again and again and again and again.
We don’t want to seem too crazy about this, but without worms, this continual downward spiral of using up nutrients without replacing them would soon result in worthless soil with no nutrients and quite possibly a dead planet. That’s where our wriggly little friends come into play. When a plant dies and falls to the ground, it decays. Worms eat the decaying matter. Then something amazing happens. Research worldwide has shown that what goes in one end of the worm comes out the other end with up to 700% of the bio-available nutrients. That’s right, up to 700% of the bio-available nutrients. And so thanks to worms, plants live on. How do the worms do it? I have no idea. I’m just glad that they do.
Worm poop, called worm castings, is the finest soil additive, fertilizer and conditioner available. And it is 100% natural. While some people consider this a miracle, we don’t. We consider it completely natural. Exactly as nature intended. And this occurs without harsh man-made chemicals that deplete and destroy the soil and whose production pollutes the air we all breath. So welcome to the world of worm castings and the amazing results they produce. We invite you to enjoy the healthiest plants, the tastiest vegetables, the most abundant fruits and the most beautiful flowers that you have ever experienced. Naturally. And while you are savoring all of that, you’ll be joining us in saving the planet, one worm at a time.
At our Wonder Worms greenhouse, we provide an environment perfect for the reproduction of worms and the production of worm castings. We sift the harvested compost castings to separate out the finest vermiculture on the planet. We bag it up and make it available to those who wish to enjoy the benefits of this amazing natural substance. In our bags you will find the worm castings and a micro percentage of fibrous material that could not be eaten by the worms or fully composted. It will in no way affect the value of the castings nor negatively impact plant. It will however help aerate the soil which is a good thing. So why not give our amazing vermicompost a try?
We offer 10-quart dry measure bags for $20.00 each. Since you only need about one cup in each hole for flowers or garden plants like tomatoes or peppers, it will last a long time. Of course if you have a really big garden you’ll want more than one bag. If you ask us to ship to you, we use UPS and you’ll need to cover the actual cost of shipping. We do not charge a “handling fee”. Just give us a call or send us an email.
