Our Barefoot Soil Earthworm Castings add important plant
growth enhancers. They are an excellent addition to your garden
and are a perfect year round organic soil amendment.
Worm castings are a rich, all-natural source of organic
matter with lots of nutrients- and moisture-holding
capabilities. Earthworm castings are known to have
an extraordinary effect on plant life. Castings improve
the soil structure and increase fertility, which make
them one of the most enriched soil conditioners available.
Barefoot Soil has received the highest attainable
rating “EXCELLENT” from an independent testing laboratory.
Certified “Organic”, the soil contains 60% worm castings
40% worm compost that has been double sifted into
a black nutrient-rich humus. The soil is odor free
and will not burn. The high species diversity of micro
– organisms serves as a protector against disease
as well as helps to control disease. In addition,
the micro-organisms break down soil nutrients making
them readily to plant root hairs to utilize. Other
benefits include stabilizing soil aggregates to enhance
water-holding ability. Barefoot Soil is high in nitrogen,
phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and trace
minerals that are available immediately and time released
for maximum results. There are special plant growth
enhancers as well that are only apparent in worm-worked
soil. Studies show plants or seeds demonstrate the
following attributes when grown in worm castings:
greater plant height, leaf area, root mass, better
germination and faster growth. Long-term benefits
include improvement of soil, and subsequent subsurface
water quality. Can be used to make worm tea to spray
on soil and plants, which multiplies the beneficial
effects of the micro - organisms.
