Why is it recommended not to add worm castings to fruit trees?


Answer:

Hello Mark, I am not sure what you are referring to but I guess you might have read somewhere that you shouldn't add worm castings to fruit trees and vegetable plants. This remark must have referred to worm castings that were produced by recycling dog poop. There are some concerns from people that think that the worm castings produced from dog poop might still contain pathogens that might than be absorbed by the fruit trees at a later stage.
We are no scientists but still believe that worm castings that have been produced from dog poop will produce much healthier crops than crops that come from trees and plants that have been treated with chemicals and sprayed with pesticides.

We have been using some worm castings that have been produced from dog poop together with other worm castings for more than a decade now even for our fruit trees and on our vegetables but believe that everybody has to decide himself how they want to use the dog poop worm castings.

But if you want to play it absolutely safely you could use the worm castings from the dog poop to feed to your ornamental plants and trees and use all the other worm castings that have been produced from kitchen-, garden- and other household waste for your food producing trees and plants.

I hope this clears that matter up a little Mark.

Kind regards and God bless.
