Worm compost is very rich in nutrients and organic matter and can be used as an excellent medium to grow plants in. It is rich in soluble plant foods and its fine crumbly texture will greatly improve soil structure. It is not necessary to sterilise the compost before using it in the garden, its bacterial content comprises beneficial species which will not harm your plants. It can be used in all the situations where compost is normally used, for example when planting seeds or shrubs; or as a top dressing for fast-growing plants.

Worm Compost is much more than just a simple fertiliser, it can be used to keep favourite specimen plants in peak condition. Used around the plant's base it will both feed the plant and help retain moisture for the roots. When planting out seedlings, beans etc sprinkle a little along the bottom of the trench to give them the best start in life.

If you haven't given it a go, why not consider starting Worm Composting in one of our new Urbalive Worm Composters?
