Worm juice

My neighbour gave me 2 bottles of worm juice yesterday and I was wondering if that is something that I can use to fertilise some of the plugs I have just transplanted or should it be used on established plants only? Never used it before. Thanks

    I've a feeling it's best diluted a bit ... don't want to give little plants indigestion  :/

    I read this morning that it's not a good idea to feed plug plants. There are enough nutrients in the compost for the first few weeks.

    Dilute it and water around plants in leaf out in your garden.  Past-flowering bulbs would enjoy some extra nutrients, as well as trees and shrubs coming into leaf.  Don't put it on anything you plan to eat (veg, fruit, etc).  I'm not sure the dilution rate though, so hopefully some wormery people know.

  • Worm juice is the liquid that drains out of a worm farm (or wormery) and is apparently one of the best organic fertiliser out there.

    The info that came with my wormery says to dilute 1 part worm juice to 10parts water, it’s pretty potent stuff

    I thought it was something like boiled worm soup - gross! 
    Thanks for enlightening me  ;)

    Better still is worm compost tea (a tea made from the composted soil after the worms are done with it).  The worm juice is a lot more potent, and slightly different in it's composition.
