How it works

  • Worm Castings

    Soil Microorganisms

    A spoonful of healthy soil contains millions of beneficial microscopic
    organisms of various kinds including beneficial species of bacteria, fungi,
    nematodes and protozoa that never cause disease or become pests.

    These helpful species perform vital “functions” in the root zone that will
    bring real benefits to gardeners and growers IF soil conditions are
    managed to allow microbes to live and function.

    Decaying matter (humas) loosens soil for improved root development.
      Humas enables the soil to better absorb and retain moisture and helps
    young plants to establish healthy root systems earlier.

    During the decomposition process of organic matter, a continuous
    supply of carbon dioxide, nitrogen in various forms, phosphorous and
    other nutrients essential to plant growth are released.  Organic matter
    serves as a “storage facility” for mineral nutrients such as calcium,
    magnesium, potassium and many others, lessening the risk of nitrogen
    loss by leaching.

    These minerals and/or fertilizers are not always in a form available to
    plants.  It takes the action of soil microorganisms to release these
    nutrients, as your plants need them.  Beneficial microorganisms do
    nature’s job by:

    • Decomposing organic matter to humas and releasing plant
      food elements;
    • Breaking down minerals;
    • Working with enzymes and hormones in the soil for the
      plants to use.

    Different microorganisms perform important functions.
    These organisms break down plant and other remains in a highly
    systematic manner.

    Nurturing Nature Worm Castings are a proven means of restoring
    some of the beneficial life to the soil, especially the beneficial bacteria
    and protozoa.

    Worm castings are the richest form of plant food (a natural fertilizer)
    known to humans.  Worm castings stimulate plant growth more than
    any other natural product, and are the only medium capable of
    releasing any existing locked up minerals in the soil to make them
    available for use by plants.

    Nurturing Nature Worm Castings work opposite of fertilizers in that
    their effect increase and improves with time instead of depleting or
    becoming used up as the growing season progresses.

     

    The most significant benefit of using Nurturing Nature Worm
    Castings is their proven ability to return the beneficial microorganisms
    (the life) to your soil.

    Completely SafeWorm Castings naturally occur in healthy soils.
      They are completely safe for our children, pets, soil and ground water.
      Worm castings will not harm our environment in any way.

    Increased Disease Suppression – By using Nurturing Nature Worm
     Castings you return beneficial organisms to the soil.  Beneficial organisms
     out compete, inhibit and consume bad organisms, creating healthier plants.
     The high levels of beneficial bacteria and fungi in Nurturing Nature’s
     Worm Castings help out compete and fight off foliar plant diseases such
     as black spot, powdery mildew and blight.

    Increased Pest Resistance – Pest insects may prey on weak and
     unhealthy plants. When using Nurturing Nature Worm Castings you
     develop stronger and healthier plants that are better able to resist the
     attack of pest insects.  Worm castings do not harm beneficial insects.

    Improve Soil Structure – Worm castings drastically improve soil structure.
     Good soil structure results in better moisture retention, allows plant roots
     to move easier through the soil and helps oxygen move into the soil. God
     soil structure is better able to withstand erosion and compaction.

    Improve the Soil’s Nutrient Retention – Worm Castings contain millions
     of soil microorganisms.  Soil microorganisms hold micronutrients in their
     bodies; therefore nutrients do not get leached out of the soil.  Worm
     castings, unlike animal manures and hot composts will not burn your plants.

    Make nutrients available to the plant when the plant needs them
     Most  of the nutrients that the plant needs, especially nitrogen, are
     converted into plant available forms by protozoa.  These microorganisms
     then recycle nutrients and feed your plants as needed.  As such, naturally
     occurring immediate, short and long term “slow release” of nutrients occur.

    Create Plant Producing Hormones – Nurturing Nature Worm Castings
     contain a high amount of beneficial bacteria.  Such beneficial bacteria
     produce hormones that increase plant growth and production and improve
     the development of plants root systems.

    Allow for decomposition of toxic materials in the soil – The soil
     microorganisms in Worm Castings break down both chemical and plant
     produced toxins.  This stops the build up and leaching of such compounds
     into our ground waters.
