I reported in an earlier post worm juice is very expensive on the dark side. This was an under statement according to the price I paid for a litre yesterday this being $9.95 reduced from $14.95. Normally I wouldn't be so extravagant however I thought I might conduct a controlled experiment after reading the comments on rose juice in this thread.

Please share your findings with us when you've completed your experiment Ausrose. I think there will be quite a few interested.

I've just found it here in Melbourne on eBay for $5.95 for 2 litres. Pick up only, so it doesn't help you Ausrose, but here on "The Dark Side" there are bargins to be had!

Roseman, sorry, but it's pick up only!
I've just had an idea!
I've phone the lady with the worm juice and she says she is quite prepared to look at shipping, but,.... feels it will be price prohibitive. You can check the price with the Post office and also mention it is liquid. She was unsure if we could ship liquids interstate. I'll wait to hear from you. I'm collecting mine on Friday morning. I'm quite prepared to ship for you if price is ok, but I'll have to know before Friday so I can pick up extra for you at the same time. Very Happy

Hi SueH, I give my established Roses Wormjuice, by established I mean anything I have had in for more than a year. I also do my Roses in pots. I like to do this after I have watered or it has rained. As I said in previous note I flush out my Wormfarms (I have 2) with a bucket of water to each when I feed them & that means when I water down to 50-50 I end up with 4 buckets of Diluted Wormjuice. That being enough then to use on 12 Roses. Then next time I feed & flush I have enough for another 12. I try & do each rose around once a month. In between doing Roses, I use on my other SPECIAL plants. I use the worm castings as seedraising mix, in potting mix & mixed in around my Vegie & other gardens.Digger

Sue from the information I have seen online some say apply 15 to 20 mls of worm juice to 1 litre of water it depends if the
worm juice is straight or it has been diluted already with water also.

Thanks Dianne and Guys! Have just bought some to use until my own farm is productive! Do you think I can use it on roses which I potted up last Autumn, even if I have to dilute is down by say 1/2?

With regards to the dilution rate of the wormjuice isn't it going to depend on what rate the supplier has concentrated their juice. Which will mean you do need to follow the manufacturers instructions as they may differ from one supplier to another. At least if you are doing your own you know what ratio to use. Because I flush my wormfarms out like a heavy rain (they actually like this) it means my juice is already diluted and then I dilute down further to a week tea solution (See my earlier postings). Some manufacturers may be using the worm castings to make the juice & that will make the mix even stronger (depending on amount of water added of course). So if I am buying juice I would always follow manufacturers instructions.

Do many of you use Sudden Impact and if so, do you use it every 7 weeks as recommended. Also are there any months you don't use it & if that is the case, do you use an alternative then. If you don't use Sudden Impact at all what do you use?? Happy Gardening over the Week end.

Dannyboy, on the bottles it says 1 to 5 for seedlings and 1 to 3 for others!! When i picked the juice up, someone else was there buying some and he said he had used it before and used a ratio of 1 to 8 for his roses. He has just over 85 bushes and uses it all the time.

I repeat one of the best rose growers in Sydney suggests using fertilisers at half strength recommended on the label.
The best growth and healthiest plants I have seen after use of undiluted worm juice was 10 to 1. This was used as a foliar spray weekly.
I'm talking about an exhibition grower who's HT rose bushes are nearly twice the size others growing them.
St Patrick 1700 to 1800 tall by 1200 wide with 60 blooms.
I just couldn't believe the fantastic growth he has on all his HT's

He's just shy, Dianne! LOL
I thin the chap I was talking to, after I bought my worm juice, said much the same thing. He thought the sellers were just trying to sell more!!! Coming up Roses
