Orcon Worm Castings Organic Garden Fertilizer Review

When I first heard of Orcon Worm Castings Organic Garden Fertilizer, I crunched up my forehead and asked what? I had the similar response when I shoveled my first load into my flower bed.

I expected something smelly, slimy, and gross. It’s fertilizer, right? Well, Orcon Earthworm Castings are completely odorless and safe around kids and pets. Plus, it isn’t gross at all, it looks like dirt, because it sort of is super charged dirt.

How Earthworm Castings are made

We all know that earthworms are great for gardens. You can actually buy earthworms from Orcon. They loosen and aerate soil, create burrows to enable soil to hold water, etc.

Earthworms cultivate and feed by swallowing lots of soil. They digest the soil, extract the food value, and then expel the residue as worm castings. Worm castings are 5X richer than the top 6 inches of top soil! The worm castings are richer in nitrogen, phosphates, calcium, and magnesium than even the best top soil.

With earthworm castings, you don’t need artificial or chemical foods for your plants.

Back to Orcon Worm Castings Organic Garden Fertilizer Review

I used the Orcon Worm Castings in planting a new shrub in my garden that lacks good soil. It is really tough ground with very little top soil. Heavily laden with roots from the trees. I’m building up this flower bed each year with top soil and fertilizer. The worm castings start feeding my plants right away, however I won’t see the results until about 30-60 days, which is when my plants’ health should be optimal and luxurious looking.

I started organic gardening last summer and it seems to be easier once I start taking steps like this.

So, could the Best Organic Garden Fertilizer be Worm Castings? It seems like a great option for me, I’ll check back with my garden results this summer and you can see for yourself.
