We need lovley wriggly worms in order to have healthy, productive gardens.
Thanks to our regular monthly garden gnome, Jodi Jackson for spending some time with us on Wednesday, as usual it was an informative and slightly strange show! LISTEN TO THE SHOW
Worm farms are a great way to compost your kitchen scraps and their castings are sooooo good for the garden. It really is pretty easy to set up worm farm, all you need to start is:
Compost or manure to make a bed on the bottom of your vessel
Worms (which hopefully you have been gifted by a friend) or you can buy them from your local nursurey
Pop your worms on top of your bed of compost add a few cups of shredded lettuce or greens to get them started and then cover with a lid or hessian sack to keep out the birds.
Make sure you put a container under the vessel to catch worm juice.
The Green Life Soil Company has a great factsheet
