Earthworms Love Roses

 

 

For beautiful roses, feed those earthworms.

Worm castings provide a rich source of a variety of essential plant nutrients.

Studies show that earthworm castings increase height, stem diameter, enhance root growth, increase dry weight, and produce more flowers per plant than peat moss.

Redworm castings are the richest and purest humus matter in the world. Humus is believed to aid in the prevention of harmful plant pathogens, fungi, nematodes and bacteria.

Roses appreciate four cups of castings per plant.
