Benefits of worm castings
Following up on a previous post where I was adding worm castings to the top of the Borage plants. Now I am immediately seeing a couple benefits using the worm castings: 1) Water retention and 2) Uniform surface absorption. What I mean by second is that the uniform sized castings cause the water to drain uni-formally at the surface rather than spilling off to the side. Granted I usually hand rake before such waterings however in this instance this extra step is unnecessary.
