worm leachate

I have read on some websites that the liquid produced from my wormery, called leachate, could be harmful rather then beneficial to my garden plants.  I know it has to be diluted with water (10:1), but I'm still a bit nervous about using it.  Has anyone used it on their plants?

    Use it all the time - great stuff! The only reason that I know that could cause a problem is applying it neat or not dilute enough which could burn the roots and cause harm. However you have the dilution rate spot on and I see no reason why it should only do good to your plants.

    Thanks for that, Daintiness.  I think I just needed a bit of reassurance!
