Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by oldVermonter Really expensive...but a really fine product
I've been doing vegetable gardening for quite a few years, and this is one of the nicest soil amendments I have ever seen. There is no comparing this with the typical "garden soil" you normally see for sale.
The product is deep black in color, with a clean, pleasant "soil" smell. It is very clean - - there is almost no "miscellaneous" material (compared to for example, typical planting mixes).
But wow, is it expensive - - way too pricey to use by itself. But for a plant you really care about, it would work really well to enrich your planting mix - - say, 3 parts regular soil to 1 part this product.

Full of fillers. Not much worm castings in it. Not worth the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tjellis51 Just what I needed
I received this product in May 2016. I took the time to read all of the information. I have used it with two tomato plants. One was planted in the soil and one in a 2-gallon container. I am also using this with watermelons. There were a few lumps in the bag, but that may have been from moisture. You do not have to add a lot of casting to the soil, and this means the casting will last longer. I have black clay, and this is ideal. Can't wait for the tomatoes to ripen.

As an organic gardener, I just love worm casting (worm poo) and couldn't get enough this stuff, we gardener call it "black gold' because it's precious to creating fertile soil. Normally you have to go to specialty nursery to get this awesome organic fertilizer. I use it in my garden bed, container, indoor house plants, etc... In addition, I use it to make worm tea, a liquid form of organic fertilizer. Whenever I prep my garden soil, worm casting is the first thing that come to mind. It acts a soil amendment, by aerating the soil to prevent compaction. It softens soil for young seedlings, so they can develop strong root systems. It also adds excellent source of nitrogen without the harmful effect of synthetic/chemical fertilizer. More importantly it won't burn your plants. It is truly a gift of Nature.

The product mixes with the soil very easily. It looks rich with nutrients! I don't have a green thumb, but over the last few weeks, I noticed my flower bulb shoots grew quickly. I did two areas, and the one with the worm casting sprung up faster. I didn't use it on the grass, as I have a large lot and worked it in many other areas. I'm getting MORE for the lawn, as many people said it doesn't burn or have any negative effects. I've also mixed it in my square-foot garden area where we are about to plant some fall squash. I've never used a product like this one, but I would recommend it over the many other garden products since it's safe and natural. I don't like products with chemicals. Plus, I like knowing how it's made.

I've used worm castings for years because they are so beneficial for seed starting and for transplanting new plants into a garden. Combined with coconut coir (instead of peat moss) and vermiculite and/or perlite, worm castings offer seedlings nutrition to thrive and become strong transplants. I also use worm casings mixed with coconut coir and the surrounding soil in transplanting anything into the garden. I hope you will start to offer worm castings in the garden dept. of your stores. As a side note, I have found that watering my seedlings with a solution of 1/4 C. of 3% peroxide mixed with 1 gal. water aids in preventing and curing the "damping off" fungus that causes seedlings to die off.

The one cubic foot sack of Organic Worm Casting Soil is enough to fertilize all the shrubs, trees, perennials, potted plants, even the yard. My yard is small to medium sized lot, almost 1/4 acre and fully landscaped. The worm castings soil is a very rich amendment added a cup per shrub to the top layer of the soil in existing plantings or you can add one cup to a freshly dug hole in new plantings. The worm casting soil can also be added freely to the lawn. It is a slow released fertilizer that will not burn or harm the landscaping. Absolutely awesome and easy to apply. So rich and nutritious.

Absolutely the best fertilizer you can buy. Dark and rich, it looks like good farm soil. I applied in directly to the soil, amending our very sandy soil. In our case, this should allow subsequent watering to filter the nutrients down to lower roots as well. I mixed the castings in with a mulch rich organic potting soil as well for plants, and it creates a really nice blend.
