Re: Setting up another worrmery

Thank you so much for your tips.

Second tray sounds good enough. I do not fancy touching the feeding tray so rather move a whole tray than dig worms and castings from the top.

Thanks once again :)

Setting up another worrmery

My first wormery is such a success that I will get another one. This time just a housing, to save on costs. How do I seed it with worms? I was thinking about moving one tray from my established one. Is this a good idea? If yes, which tray should I move, the top one, the one below? I have three tray ...

Re: Winter

I have a similar problem, wormery outside. Decided to order small (49 x 69 x 130 cm) PVC grenhouse and set it up over the wormery, plus lined it inside (sides and back) with old carpet. During assembly I left the opening unobstructed by skipping a few poles. So far so good, worms safe from elements ...

Re: RELOCATING THE WORMERY

Done. We managed to keep the wormery intact during transport to minimise disruption. I call it a success, worms are doing well and mostly stay inside. Thanks for all the tips :)

RELOCATING THE WORMERY

My wormery is going to be relocated. Short trip, few miles but still a journey. I wonder how to approach this task. Can I split the wormery in segments and place each one in a bag or shall I aim for keeping the whole thing intact during transport? How the worms will react to being moved and disrupte...

Re: Sunflower husks

Oh, and I found perfect moisture mat if someone do not like to play with wet cardboard or such. Poundshop does two round coco coir flower basket liners for £1. It fits perfectly in a bin, one as it is and the other cut in quaters to cover the corners. It keeps everything covered and worms love to bu...

Re: Sunflower husks

Thanks for assurance :) . I try to give them diverse food but I realised my household do not produce much of the right type of scraps. I even spoke to canteen staff at work and now they try to keep for me their scraps but, as they are quite busy and often forget, most stuff I get is the melon peels ...

Re: Sunflower husks

OK, so it's beed a few months and everything seems to be going fine. I am about to add a third tray and start filling it (I started with double the number of worms). I got access to lot of used coffee grinds and shredded paper. Everytime I add scraps to the bin I run them thru the blender first to b...

Re: Sunflower husks

Hi, thank you for a quick answer. I do not have compost bin so I think I will let my local council collect and compost most of the husks. There are too many of them so will clog the wormery for ages. What about grinding/soaking some of them and adding them as grit to aid worms' digestion, in similar...

Sunflower husks

Hello fellow worm keepers :). I am a new wormery keeper so probably will need quite a lot of advice. My first question is: are roasted sunflower husks suitable feed? My husband tries to wean hinself off cigarettes so consume tonnes of sunflower seeds. The result is a lot of husks. Can i give them to...
