Worm castings are one of the premium soil supplements available anywhere. Their high microbial life, ample trace minerals, and myriad of nutrients make them the ideal choice for any type of plant growth. While you may know that they are amazing, it’s not always easy to find them locally.
If you’re asking yourself, “where can I buy worm castings locally?” you are not alone. Depending on where you live, there are a few common spots that you’ll find worm castings for sale. Here are some of the most common spots to find them:
In some areas, there will be a local vendor selling them at the farmer’s market. Since they are a natural, sometimes organic product, producers will often look to local farmer’s markets to sell their castings. The advantage of buying castings from the farmer’s market is that they are available and local. However, the downside is that the consistency of the product may vary. A lot of these sellers are “mom and pop” operations that make the castings in their garage. The quality control processes and controlled food supply for the worms may not be there. This creates an inconsistent product that may or may not be teaming with beneficial microbes for your plants. If you can’t find them elsewhere though, it may be worth a shot.
In many cases, you’ll be able to find worm castings in your local hardware store. Look for them in the fertilizers and soil supplements section of the store. When you buy this kind of worm castings, you’re getting castings from a producer that is more established and has a more consistent production process. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean they are the highest quality. In many cases, the brands on the hardware store shelves is made for mass production and quality isn’t the highest that it could be. A lot of these brands are made from red wiggler worms, which is basically a compost product. That means that the microbe count isn’t as high as it is in pure earthworm castings, and the nutrients may not be as numerous. While you will find some benefit for your plants, it may not be the amazing plant food that you’ll get from pure earthworm castings.
Big Box Stores
Another common place to find worm castings is at your local big box store. If you live in a city big enough to have a Lowe’s, Home Depot, Menard’s, etc, you’ll likely find small bags of worm castings on the shelves. Like at the hardware store, they’re usually located with the plant foods, fertilizers, and soil supplements. The quality is often the same as what you’d find in a hardware store. These products are made on a mass scale and quality isn’t usually the most important factor.
