Re: How do I know my wormery is healthy?

Hi Willy, hope they enjoy it! I sprinkled a little in mine yesterday afternoon and they are all over it this morning.

Re: How do I know my wormery is healthy?

Hi Willy and thanks - would be interested to know how it works for your worms too, hopefully puts a spring in their slither!

Re: How do I know my wormery is healthy?

Hi, just wanted to add something I've discovered in recent months prompted by your lovely words about worms 'buzzing with movement'! I read somewhere (can't remember where, perhaps it was here?) that bran helps to increase our worms' vigour and breeding instincts so I've been adding just a sprinkle ...

Re: Lid of wormery

Thanks! I managed to push the lid into place this morning - more pliable now as it's older. First time I'd tried again after setting it up! Glad I know now but can confirm that having that little gap for all this time hasn't caused any issues either :)

Re: Lid of wormery

Hi Vinny Yes -that's exactly how mine is - thanks for clarifying with the photo from this angle. It hasn't caused me any problems in over two years having that little gap; I'm comfortable knowing there's good air circulation and (now long-settled) the worms don't want to get out, apart from a few on...

Re: Lid of wormery

Hi both, found this interesting as my wormery lid doesn't fit snugly either but I had always assumed it was meant to be like that so that it lets in some air. It isn't raised all the way around, just rests on the tabs at the front as in your photo. It's not raised on the tabs all the way round as th...

Re: Wormery sump tap leak

Many thanks Willy - will do or if not I'm sure I can get some washers at a hardware store, should hopefully stop the leak. Meanwhile the wormery is in the shed and I've put a polythene on the floor so it catches the drips!

Wormery sump tap leak

I've noticed the sump on my wormery is leaking, I replaced it a little while back thinking that there was a hole in the sump itself as I couldn't work out why there was leachate accumulating on the floor, but it's leaking again so it seems to be down to the tap arrangement as it just has the plastic...

Re: What did you feed your worms today?

So relieved to find my worms eagerly returning to the top tray for food again after the recent long spell of sub-zero temps! Once it had warmed up, they went mad for chopped red cabbage mixed with apple (it sort of becomes a pickle - must say, it smells delicious!). Definitely a favourite. Today's m...
