Buy a worm farm and make your own for free too

worm castings and container gardening [R]

I saw this article about starting a little worm farm to collect worm castings for your garden. I'm new to gardening and have been growing things in pots and container this spring/summer. If worm castings are good for a garden, wouldn't it be better to just put some worms right into my garden containers? Would this be a good idea or is there a reason why you wouldn't want the worms living directly in your crop's soil?

You can buy bags of worm castings. That’s what I am using now mixed with my soil until I get around to starting to compost.

It looks like the generic stuff like Miracle gro is cheaper at a garden center. I saw this other stuff "Michigan Peat" being sold on Amazon but that had terrible reviews and wasn't Prime eligible (you're still paying for shipping). Like /u/meticulous_gardener said, if you're getting a cubic foot, it's definitely cheaper to have a truck come deliver.

If you live in the city or can't get it delivered by the truckload, then this looks like the best quality soil.

I started a worm farm! Now how do I educate people into purchasing my products! [R]

Recently, I was approached by a fellow entrepreneurial friend who brought up the idea. He thought I would be able to make it happen since I have experience in gardening, and spend all my time researching business. Currently, I am working on my BA in accounting to learn the foundations to owning my own business someday. All that said--I am new, and learned most of what I know off of lurking on this site for the last two years.

I wanted to utilize this first business of my own as a learning block for web development, marketing, accounting, taxes, sales, and management, but I have a basic manufacturing plant in my garage now, and don't know where to sell my product necessarily. I wanted to lightly advertise on craigslist to keep things simple, but am now realizing that 40,000 worms produce a lot of soil, and I have to get rid of it--I don't have the space!

So far I taught myself basic coding from recommendations from /r/entrepreneur, and built Jollyworms.com, but don't know if I am converting people to a sale.

I have been trying adwords the last week, and it is honestly very expensive to gather clicks like that for a start up. So I will put together a facts, and questions list, and most importantly I will be so very thankful for any help.

Facts: Worm Castings are the most potent natural occurring fertilizer, and a lot of organic farms are making their way to microbial fertilizer such as worm castings.

My calculated gross margin will be approximately 67% (sales less costs of goods sold before expenses for those who want to know the specific calculation)

So far I have made 3 sales off of craigslist. I hope to be able to sell my castings nationally along with worm bins for peoples home use, or to teach their children sciences behind natural processes.

Questions:

  • How do I generate interest beyond Adwords?
  • Am I stupid for thinking people want to buy worm dirt?
  • How do I cultivate, and educate people around the benefits?
  • How do I market the product locally beyond craigslist?
  • How do I get people to convert into sales on my site (my bounce ratio is 86% this last week of advertising?
  • How do I design the website better.
  • What would you like to know about worms, or the future plans?

I use to run a science blog for a while, and was running approximately 2 million users a day through it, but selling products is much different than posting your articles to social media.

>Am I stupid for thinking people want to buy worm dirt?

I'm into gardening myself and all those organic/natural obsessed hippies buy that shit en masse. I thought about producing it myself but never executed on the idea.

The market is there. You just need great marketing (and packaging because it's a feelgood product and great packaging is one of the most important things here) to get it sold. Just market it to the organic crowd. Your average hobby gardener who uses Miracle Gro probably isn't your main customer. But people who read http://www.motherearthnews.com probably are.

>How do I cultivate, and educate people around the benefits?

Educating consumers is a losing game. It's hard and you need to have deep pockets. Better market directly to the people who already want a product like yours.

>How do I generate interest beyond Adwords?

It goes like: First you need a profile of your ideal customer (the narrower the better, the more real world data from existing customers you have the better). Then find out where those customers hang out and what media they consume. (Forums, blogs, magazines, podcasts, etc). Then advertise there. Depending on the niche and community sponsoring a forum or a blog for example is great return.

Oh, idea: Put your stuff on Amazon. This product here has around 500 reviews. That's huge if you take into account how few people actually get their asses up to write a review. Assuming your worm castings are of equal quality you just need a better packaging and marketing. I'd go for a brown paper bag with a label like this one here. Then add a great product description and bam. (Just don't compete on price!)

>How do I design the website better.

Once you have your ideal customer profile design the website so it caters to them. Your current website looks great but unless your marketing your worm castings to big time farmers the images don't "speak" to your customers. Your customers should identify themselves with what they see in your marketing materials.

Disclaimer: This is just my possibly meaningless input. I thought max 20 minutes about the topic. There's a big chance that I'm talking bullshit because I'm just some anonymous guy on the internet. Don't turn off your brain and mindlessly follow/believe what I wrote. Do your own thinking!

I have a raised garden bed that is 45in x 19in x 6in. I'm wanting to plant preferably veggies or herbs. What are the best plants to grow in this size of garden bed?

grow radishes!

as for the soil, you can either add some compost (i recommend worm casting compost like this). or instead you can feed your plants with fertilizer (i recommend fish emulsion such as this). in either case you should change your soil out after the growing season to help reduce disease risk.

Just got this orchid for clearance. Anything I can do to revive it? More info in comments. [R]

The plant looks fine; though I'm no expert on orchids.

Based on it's size, and the size of the container, I'd imagine there aren't a lot of nutrients left in the soil for the plant. Larger container. Remove dead plant matter. Lightly apply a plant fertilizer with diverse nutrients (suggestion #1), (suggestion #2).

Anyone ever use Scotts Lawns 23100 Turf Builder Starter New Grass Fertilizer? [R]

Just bought Scotts Lawns 23100 Turf Builder Starter New Grass Fertilizer from Amazon.

Anyone ever use it? Positive/negative reaction? My lawn recently had fresh dirt laid down, fertilizer, and seed added - about a week ago. Seeing small blades popping up now and want the grass to grow strong roots so the dogs don't destroy it when they're allowed back outside.

I get nervous spraying stuff as I previously used this - Ortho Max Nutsedge Killer on my lawn. It destroyed all nut-grass in the front, without hurting my lawn at all. However in my backyard, it killed the nut-grass, and much of the other grass that was there as well. I'm just paranoid now!

thanks!

thanks for your thoughts - if I could pick your brain, what do you think of [Earthworm Castings] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00062KQ42/ref=ohdetailso03s00i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I also ordered from Amazon recently. My thought was to let what my landscaper put down, sit for a week to ten days and see where we are (I water it multiple times a day as well). If it isn't going well after that, I'll mix this Earthworm Castings with [this seed] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003AYWIU8/ref=ohdetailso03s01i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and then water the lawn with the Scott's spray

Supersoil (Just add water) [R]

1/4 Recipe of Original Recipe/2010 Recipe (Already had some amendments so made due with what I had)

2x 1.5cf Roots Organics Original

15lbs EWC

1.25lbs Steamed Bone Meal 3-15-0

1.25lbs Bat Guano 0-5-0

1.25lbs Blood Meal 12-0-0

3tbs Epsom Salt

3tbs Dolomite Lime

2tbs Azomite

2tsp Humic Acid

1/3 Package Roots Organics Oregonism XL or a couple scoops of Great White (This is not for Mykos but other Beneficial Bacteria to start the soil web growing) You could also use an EWC Tea.


Mix everything together on a tarp, in a kiddie pool, or directly in your storage container. Add 2 liters of water(or 2 liters of EWC Tea) and let it sit for 4 weeks.

For Veg (Up until last transplant) I use Roots Organics Original and Just add Water

I only use Supersoil in my Finishing pot (7 Gallon Smart Pot). Bottom half is filled with supersoil, Top half is filled with Roots Organics Original. Again I just add water. (If using RO water add normal dose of General Organics CaMg+)

I will also give my ladies 2x carbo loads during flowering.

Day 25 and Day 45

1tsp Per Gallon Bud Candy(Adds Humic Acid to help break down the sugars)

1tsp Per Gallon Sucanat(Non refined Cane Sugar, much less messy than molasses)

Next go around I will be using Pro-Tekt all through growing to help boost the PH up a little since the CaMg+ really lowers it in RO water. Used it in flower this round and didnt see a big difference(Should be more benefits during veg)
