INSTRUCTIONS
When sowing herbaceous crops in ridges (parsley, lettuce, dill, spinach, etc.)
Distribute vermicompost over the ridge, mix it with soil and water, and then seed. Apply 0.7-1.5L (0.5-1 kg) of vermicompost to 1 sq.m. of the ridge.
When transplanting tomatoes, cucumbers and pepper to the open ground
Add 150-300 ml (100-200 gm) of vermicompost to each hole, mix it with soil, water abundantly and transplant. After transplanting cucumbers mulch soil around a plant and apply a 1-2cm layer of vermicompost.
When planting potato
Add 150-300 ml (100-200 gm) of vermicompost to each tuber.
When planting strawberry
Add 250-300 ml (150-200 gm) of vermicompost to each hole.
To make potting soil for flowers
Mix one part vermicompost with 4-5 parts of soil.
When planting winter garlic
Apply 0.7L (0.5 kg) of vermicompost and mix it with soil at a depth of 10 cm.
When planting bushes (gooseberry, currant, etc.)
Add 2.5L (1.5 kg) of vermicompost to a plant hole, mix it with soil carefully, and water.
When planting fruit trees
Add 3L (2 kg) of vermicompost to a plant hole of each transplant (apple, pear, cherry, plum, etc.) and mix it with soil.
To feed bushes and fruit trees
Distribute 0.7L (0.5 kg) of vermicompost over 1 sq.m. of soil according to the crown diameter.
To feed plants during vegetation
Apply 0.7L (0.5 kg) of vermicompost around stems or between the ridges once a month per 1 sq.m., mix it up and water.
To feed house plants
Add 2-3 tablespoonfuls of vermicompost to each plant.
To feed flowers and decorative plants in the open ground
Add 300-400 ml (150-200 gm) of vermicompost monthly to each plant or 0.7L (0.5 kg) per one sq.m. of the flower-bed, lawn.
To make mixed soil for seedlings of vegetables and flowers
Mix one part of vermicompost with 3-5 parts of humus or peat.

 

To water seedlings and house plants

          Make an aqueous extract, the so-called vermicomposting “tea”,: put 1 glass of vermicompost into a bucket of room temperature water. Mix it properly and leave it for 24 hrs. This “tea” contains water soluble fractions of vermicompost (vitamins, phytohormones, humates, fulvates, etc.), as well as microflora useful for soil and plants. Soak cabbage, cucumber and tomato seeds in the solution for 12 hrs for better germination.

To water garden crops, dilute the “tea” 3 times more: 1 glass of solution + 2 glasses of water. The solution is good for sprinkling fruit trees. Sprinkling apple trees after blossom, in the beginning of fruit drop and fruit buds initiation, increases trees capacity (fruits are bigger, richer, and sweeter). Sprinkling in the period of fruit buds initiation is good for yield capacity of the next year. Mulching of soil and application of a 1-2cm vermicompost layer to the area around fruit trees (according to the crown diameter) makes fruiting of apple, cherry, black cherry and plum trees annual. This method of humus application is beneficial for gooseberry, currant, raspberry, and grape-vine. In this case outcome increases as much as 33% and ripening periods are 10-15 days shorter.

Sprinkling flower crops with the “tea” three times within 7-8 days makes them grow and blossom 7-10 days earlier. It also makes the color of leaves more intensive and improves decorative appearance and quality of flowers.
