Where should my wormery live?

Post by Shells » Tue Aug 27, 2019 5:59 pm

Hello,
I really want to get a wormery, but we don't have any grass in our garden, and only a small raised bed. Is it ok for the wormery to be placed on concrete or paving stones?

Thanks!

Yes absolutely. Mine is on concrete or in the garage in winter. Just have a bin or something similar next to the wormery so if a few escape its the first damp spot the worms find. Then you can recover and put them back. Once they are breeding you won’t notice any occasional wanderers who get further!

Worm bins can be setup and kept anywhere. Many people living in blocks of flats have worm bins in the flat or on their balcony.
Go for it, it’s a fun hobby.

I used to cover my wormeries with a polythene sheet outdoors to stop rain getting in, but these days I leave them uncovered and open to the elements, making sure I drain off the leachate often though. Over winter though, I keep them in my greenhouse where they are doing brilliantly. I harvested a bucket load of castings from one of the trays the other day and found it was crammed full of eggs. I saved a load to put back in the Wormery but there's still a heck of a lot that will be living in the soil where I use the castings.
