Gardening Goodies from Urban Ecolife Agro Farm

26 September 2021

Hello everyone! I haven't been here in a while but I'm slowly coming back to my blogging routine now that I have my life and work sorted behind the scenes. 

So you know how we have a pretty decent garden at home that my parents grow vegetables and fruits out of? I did write a little bit about it in my previous post with some really pretty pics of our garden in Our Home Garden Tour and How We Compost Our Kitchen Waste Every Day posts. 

I was recently fortunate enough to be contacted by Urban Ecolife Agro Farm to review some of their gardening products and see how effective they are in improving our green produce. 

Here is my honest review of our experience using their products.

The Products up for Review

I requested for two gardening products from Ecolife Agro Farm for reviewing - their Organic Vermicast (Earthworm Casting) and A & B Fertilizer (Plant Growth Booster). You can easily find these items or other gardening and food products on their official website and Shopee store.


All the items arrived safely in a very secured thick bubble wrap. I had to use quite a lot of my non-existent muscles to pry the packaging open to see the goodies inside. Unfortunately, we had an accident with one of the fertiliser liquids that spilled slightly in the parcel but it wasn't anything too serious. Perhaps the brand could work on ensuring that bottle caps for their liquid products are more secure. Generally, at least in terms of delivery, it was very prompt and satisfactory.

It was actually great timing that these products arrived because we were having trouble with our chili plants that were struggling to grow healthily. And with that, we put both sets of products to the test.

Organic Vermicast (Earthworm Casting) 


Let's start with Vermicompost and exactly what it is. The product is basically vermicast which is an organic by-product produced by worms through composting activities. In simpler terms, we're looking at a bag of worm poop and other undigested materials they left behind when they were chomping on decayed waste.

It was a great addition to our existing natural fertiliser collection. Previously, we've tried many options to have our chili plants live but they always ended up growing shriveled and stunted at some point in their development. We're not sure if Vermicompost was the sole contributor to our healthy chili plants which later produced ripe produce, however, since we were mostly relying on this compost over most things, we can say that it actually worked! 

We're really happy with the results. Although we've always had a healthy population of worms living in our garden, perhaps they needed a little help with richening the earth. A little comes a long way. We sprinkled small amounts of Vermicompost around the plant base every few days before watering it down.


Fertiliser A & B

Like I mentioned before, we had a little oopsie-daisy problem when we received the packaging. Had a bit of a spill despite the generous bubble wrap that came with the products. Still, it's nothing that a few wads of tissue can solve. After reading through the description of what the two products do, we got straight into testing them out on our nutrient-deprived plants. 
From what we've gathered about the two fertilisers, you mix a certain amount of them before sprinkling them onto the soil. The results as claimed by the products are better nutrient absorption and yield. 

We're not sure which of the two products - the Vermicompost or Fertiliser, or perhaps the combination of both, but after a few weeks of trying to revive our chili plants and a few others, most of them turned out so much better than what we expected. 





The end results 


Overall, we're actually really happy with the outcome of our testing of both the Vermicompost and fertilisers. We're actually looking forward to trying out potentially good products from Urban Ecolife  Agro Farm. Who knows what other hidden treasures we can find!
