Soon to be known as the "World's Greatest Organic Fertilizer!" Wiggle Worm Soil Builder™ PURE earthworm castings are surely Mother Nature's best kept growing secret. You need only use a small amount in or around your houseplants, vegetables and flowers. The miracles of the earthworm are easily seen in the beautiful growth and yields of your plants.
Procision Perlite Coarse is cut with a ten mesh screen leaving all material to retain #4. Perlite ore is a naturally occurring volcanic glass containing a small percentage of water. When that ore is introduced to tremendous heat the glass liquefies and the trapped water expands creating a remarkable and versatile material. In an ongoing quest to improve the quality of our products we recognized the opportunity to begin producing another of our own materials. Success at a new venture is never easy but we're really excited about the quality of our production.
