This is a neighbor's rototilled garden and I was wondering if I should recommend worm castings for the areas of the garden that don't produce as well as other areas? He's adding compost and fertilizer.
He has been growing a garden here for 7 years that I know of, and I think longer. Only last year and this year is he adding any amendments.
As I understand it, worm castings do several beneficial things for the soil. One of the things that it does is add worms to the soil. The garden is rototilled.
* Does that mean that there will be more worms in the soil next year also?
I read one should add 1/2 to 1 inch of castings to the soil and mix in. That would be way too expensive.
*Would just a dusting of raked in castings be beneficial?
I was also thinking of recommending Jobe's Organic Fertilizer with Biozome.
*Isn't that helpful in adding some of the micro-organisms back to the rototilled soil?
