Description

Healthy soil is the key to healthy plants

The key to successful growing is soil quality. Healthy soil rich in organic material means healthy disease resistant plants.

recycleWiscasset Blend is made of 100% earthworm castings which are naturally rich in microbial life. It will help convert the nutrients already present in your soil into a more plant-available form.

Earthworm castings hold 2-3 times their weight in water thus adding moisture retention properties to garden soil. Earthworm castings add humus, enzymes, as well as microbial life to the soil.

Remember, healthy soil is the key to growing healthy plants.

We use all natural ingredients

wormOur earthworm castings are rich, odorless, coffee ground-like particles. They are produced by earthworms fed a variety of peat and paper sources, grains and rock dusts with inoculums to promote biological diversity. This is not your usual animal manure based compost! Wiscasset Blend is designed to improve root growth and structure and enrich your soil with micro-organisms. When used in the garden it mayalso help attract deep-burrowing earthworms already present in the soil.
