Earthworms for a better Garden

On our pages about gardening tips we will focus mainly on the striking impact earthworms and worm composting

can have on the garden soil and the plants that are growing in it. There are still many people who falsely accuse earthworms of being a garden pest and harmful to flowers and vegetables.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Earthworms are very beneficial for garden soil and the plants growing in it.

We have worked with worm castings and worm tea for many years now and have had only the very best experiences with them. Our soils here are in general extremely poor.

They consist virtually entirely of sand. We have introduced just 10 to 15 percent of worm castings to our flower and vegetable patches and the results have been stunning. We had spinach plants that grew 

 up to half a meter / 20 inches high. One Tomato plant bore more than 500 fruit over a period of 3 month. Paw Paw trees grew out of worm farms to a height of 3 meter without us sewing their seeds. We harvested the first tree melons from them after only 2 years.
