Quality wormcasting

My advice would be to make your own, I have tried a few different commercial wormcasts (biobizz and plagron) and was very disappointed with the quality, nothing like the ewc I get from my own worm bin.

 

I know the common excuse is that people don't have space outside for a worm bin, but I set up, manage and maintain my worm bin entirely indoors it is very easy to do and means that all of my plant trimmings are recycled back into my ewc and I just supplement it with some other fruit, veggies and paper to give the worms a fairly balanced diet and ensure my ewc if fairly balanced as well.

commercial ones aimed at canna customers are shit as are most things aimed at the canna market...

elixir garden supplies or Yorkshire worms both have good stuff...

By the time I found elixir I already had my own worm bin so I haven't tried their EWC's but I have used them for many other things and I have been very impressed with them. If you are looking to set up a no-till bed @LokiVirandell you will be able to find a lot of the things you need from them.

Just because you'd rather eat fruit than tree bark (and who wouldn't) it doesn't mean it makes the best castings :-)

they differ from time to time so hard to say which is best but both are generally pretty good....willys I've had good and not so good, bit dry .

 

indoororganics are basically a reseller so your going to pay the price plus there share/profit for finding it for you.......
