    Default Wormery is no more


    Last year I started a wormery and managed to keep a decent supply of worms for my fishing - feeding carrot and potato peelings but in the cold weather the soil in the plastic tub froze and now I'm wormless

    Got to start again soon as worms aren't cheap

    Are you sure m'lud?

    I have a compost bin/ wormery...and they seem to disappear only to reappear at the first sign of warmth.

    Been told to be carefull with eggshells, easy to get them rammed up under your nails when taking worms out. (Not on a date)

    when using egg shells put the shells in a plastic bag
    put them in micro wave so they are dry,then whilst still in bag crush them up very small

    I tend to avoid them altogether in a wormery as they never seem to rot down and I just end up picking them out of the compost when I empty it.

    So have you lot built your own wormery or have you bought one? If you made it how and if you bought which one.

    I've made my own wormery

    I used an old 5 litre plastic bucket with a lid

    I filled it with compost and garden soil to about 6 inches from the top.
    Then put the worms in with potato and carrot peelings.

    Drilled plenty of small holes in the lid.

    Maybe the soil wasn't deep enough in the exceptionally cold winter we had.
