Re: No worms in my garden soil

Surely there are other things you can feed the birds rather than really helpful earth worms ... slugs and snails for instance. Or go to a pet shop, buy some meal worms, put them in a plastic container of bran, and in next to no time you will have a meal worm farm that can feed tonnes of birds and st...

Re: Ants

Definately too dry if ants are moving in. Obviously you have the reverse of my problem with rain, so you'll need to add additional water, maybe via a watering can with a rose ...

Long time absent but .....

I first attended these forums way back in 2013 after buying a bin type wormery for WORMCITY. Only to kind of have things go to pot the following year. The bin (or bucket) had gone 'off' in that it stank, was soaking wet, and I didn't hold out any hope for its occupants. The bucket stayed in the gard...
