Worm castings and worm tea are amongst the best soil conditioners and organic fertilizers known to man.

They improve soil structure and act as natural pesticides.

Vermiculture is used by many avid gardeners to replace or complement traditional composting.

It is a low maintenance, easy process, and produces an excellent plant food that will slowly release its nutrients to flowers, trees or vegetables.
