“Almost three years ago in late spring, Lee offered to spray my garden with Biocast+. Within a few days I was fascinated to notice there was no powdery mildew on the new growth on my small home garden pumpkin crop, then it became apparent that all my vegetables, tomatoes, lettuce, asian greens etc were more pest resistant. The root systems were more dense and it became obvious that the garden needed less water to thrive. I now understand that this is because of the biology on the leaves and stems.

“After the construction was finished on my home some 5 years ago, I slowly and deliberately chose what and where I could plant my favourite trees & shrubs, The soil in my garden is heavy clay and under normal conditions plant growth is slow, however, since I have been applying the liquid vermicast, my garden very pleasingly looks like it has been established for many years. Apart from the trees that form the garden structure, I mostly grow foliage plants suitable to be used in my flower arranging and especially need that to be pest and disease free with a healthy richness in the various shades of greens.

“New plants, especially annuals and smaller fill in shrubs and perennials are drenched before planting and there is a follow spray up during the growing season with a monthly spray, particularly for plants that I am fostering along for specific purposes, whilst the rest of the trees and shrubs continue to get an annual spraying to drip point.

“In my humble opinion, the reality is…it all comes down to soil biology and the ability of plants to convert existing trace elements and minerals into available nutrient.”
