Does Vermicompost Really Work?

Try and guess which line represents the height of vermicompost-treated plants!

While I was visiting with Leanne the other day she showed me something that blew me away. At the edge of a field of (rather sad looking) oat plants, there was a patch that looked like it had been treated with the plant equivalent of steroids! Leanne explained that it the spot where a small amount of vermicompost had been left to sit.

People tend to think of this material as a form of “fertilizer”. In my mind that term just doesn’t even come close to doing it justice!

If you think this is purely “N-P-K” at work…think again (those values are often surprisingly low, in fact)!

Much of the “magic” of vermicompost is in the biology.
