How much worm wee to use?

default How much worm wee to use?

Post by Jaded Green on 11th May 2011, 6:39 pm

Our wormery is producing worm wee and our crops would benefit. But I'm not sure how much to put into each can of water?

I'm sure someone here knows the answer. CW??

I heard my name? Very Happy

Worm tea from a wormery - dilutions varies but usually 1:10 or the make the end result the colour of weak tea.

I tend to go for "weak tea" colour as about right for nettle, seaweed, comfrey and worm teas....and it seems to work OK

As an aside, I use seaweed liquid, diluted down, as a regular feed for my houseplants ( nearly put Pot plants, there... Wink )

and they are really thriving on it with lots of lovely blooms and glossy leaves this year. I don't use the other sorts of teas as they can be a bit ...pungent...for inside use. Shocked Laughing

Well, it might be a bit smelly...I would use it back on a compost heap as an activator, rahter than risk it on a plant...OR use it on the soil around plants?

I know my stuff looks and smeels vile if kept for a bit and I do wonder about adverse bacteria multiplying in it which might not be that good for tender seedlings etc...
