BIG BIO

BIG BIO is a worm derived organically certified bio-fertiliser. Sold as a liquid and solid fertiliser product, BIG BIO is ideal for use on home gardens, as well as commercial farms and nurseries.
BIG BIO is produced in Australia’s largest urban worm farm, right here in Melbourne. The production of BIG BIO makes it unique, as the biology rich liquid leachate from the worm beds is used as a starter culture in our purpose-built bio-reactor. The microbes naturally multiply in this environment, and just like making sourdough bread, the bio-fert is ‘grown’ in the tanks. BIG BIO is full of active living biology, enzymes and plant growth hormones that increase healthy plant growth and improve the condition of your soil. These active microbes improve soil water retention, convert nutrients into a plant available form, improves the plant’s natural immune system and suppresses plant diseases.
