Worm castings are such a value because of its concentrated and long-lasting nature. Use less than half the amount of worm castings as normal compost to see amazing results! You only need to add worm castings once per season. Other fertilizers cause a short lived growth spurt that leaves a weak and disease susceptible plant. Also chemical fertilizer provide little to no micro-nutrients and minerals. Worm castings supply micro-nutrients in a very water soluble form that plants can readily use. Using worm castings year after year will enrich your soil with humus. Over time this investment in your soil will pay huge dividends in increased fertility! Also worm casting repel insects and other pest. There are many studies that prove these claims see for example this study by Washington State University.
