Why Jocelyn’s Soil Booster Worm Manure is right for: Flower growers


If you grow flowers, you probably do it for both the pleasure of a beautiful garden and the enjoyment that comes from tending to this beauty. What you might not realize, however, is that worm castings — otherwise known as worm manure — is an exceptionally powerful tool for any flower-grower’s toolkit, since it has many natural qualities and properties that lend themselves perfectly to flowering plants (and the soil they grow in). Let’s take a closer look:


Bacteria is your best friend

Flowering plants love soil that’s alive with active microbes; lucky for your plants, worm manure is chock-full of beneficial bacteria — it’s why we like to call Jocelyn’s Soil Booster Worm Manure a probiotic for your plants! The beneficial bacteria and microbes in Jocelyn’s Soil Booster Worm Manure helps to fortify and rebuild your soil, which makes for healthy, happy plants (and a healthy, happy flowers). 


On-demand microbe delivery

Flowering plants need exactly the correct amount of nutrients, at exactly the right time, to maximize the number of flowers that get set. Worm castings are jam-packed with microbes that act as an on-demand delivery system, giving plant roots just what they need, right when they need it — and nothing more, so your plants aren’t overwhelmed with nutrients and additives, as they might be from all-you-can-eat synthetic fertilizers. 


Anytime is the right time

Jocelyn’s Soil Booster Worm Manure can be used at any time in the growth cycle, from germination to mature, flowering plants. Your plant will “choose” which microbes it needs to work with (see above!), and leave out the rest, so you don’t need to worry about when to apply worm castings. One helpful tip, though, is that worm castings help shorten the seed-germination cycle, so if you want to get growing a bit faster, try adding it to your seedling soil mix. 


No chemicals, no disease, no problem

Worm castings like Jocelyn’s Soil Booster Worm Manure have been found to help prevent the development of a specific pathogen, Pythium aphanidermatum, that causes seedlings to wither shortly after germination. Plus, it’s an all-natural way to enhance your soil — and when you add no chemicals to your garden, you won't worry about bringing cut flowers inside. Win-win!


Less soil booster, more Flowers

Just one handful of Jocelyn’s Soil Booster Worm Manure will go a long way to giving your flower buds what they need to flourish; maximize your impact by also using our worm manure to germinate your seeds. Because worm castings are such a potent and effective growing tool, this means you need far less of it than traditional fertilizer to get incredible results. You can thank us (and the worms) later.
