Worm casts are fertile soil ideal for seedlings

Worm casts

 

 

If you want to clear worm casts from your lawn and make use of them, collect them (ideally when dry) and use this nutrient rich, fine soil for your seedlings. Worm casts are a natural, fertile, soil with digested vegetable matter making them ideal for growing small seedlings.

Worm casts are excreted by worms once they’ve eaten vegetable matter and as burrow tunnels through the soil.

It’s best to mix in sharp sand or grit to aid drainage to the worm casts when potting up seedlings.
