Hello
I have a lovely big tub of worm castings and would like to make worm tea. Can i do this just with a bucket and water?
I would leave the water to stand for a day then add the castings and give it a stir every day. Then bottle it and dilute 1 part to 3 of water?
I came up with this plan because i am i not able to get a pump etc like in all the recipes i have found on the internet.
Also can i just add worm castings direcly to the soil as a fertiliser?
Thank you!!!

I live in africa hence the rudimentary method.
I will be able to source a fish tank bubbly thing eventually but would like to know if anyone has had success without
Thanks!

I don't know much about this, but I found this factsheet;

here

which suggests you need to use it straight away, not bottle it.

Adding them directly to the soil - well, why not? That's what would happen naturally, I suppose.
