I heard that worm castings don't have a lot of nutritional value.But the value they have is ready available for plants to absorb..also the beneficial microbs in them is the reason they are very good for the soil.

By any chance do you sell moringa leaf from your tree or have any to share?

Not insects, but a number of snakes are beneficial to have in the garden – DeKay's Brown Snakes, Red-Bellied Snakes, Earth Snakes (in Central to Eastern US), and others like the Sharp-Tailed Snake in the West. All of those eat slugs.

Also of note, if you buy ladybugs make sure they are not wild collected and that they are a native species. Otherwise you'll just create more problems.

If I have mushrooms showing up around edible plants in the soil, does that mean they are ruined?

Pandora Fox says:

I understand that grown lady bugs are not as beneficial as the ones in the larval stage. Those are the ones that LOVE to feast on aphids, etc… I've tried buying ladybugs but they were gone in 24 hrs and we had a big infestation of aphids. Your opinion?

Hi, very helpful information. Are you familiar with an Indian banana variety called 'Elaichi Kela' in the local language. I'd like to procure and grow in California.
