The New Wormcity Wormery - Officially The Best

We have just received this weeks copy of Amateur Gardening magazine,
and when we open it and saw that the 'tried and tested' section was all about wormeries.

Imagine our delight when we noticed that our Wormcity Wormery had been given the highest mark when compared to two other 'leading' plastic wormeries

Pity they got the price wrong (quoted £10 too much) and had the trays round the wrong way - but never mind.

Keeping Your Wormery Warm

Brrr - its cold outside........

what do you do with your wormery in the winter ?

We have had a few emails recently from concerned customers about what to do with their wormery in the winter.

Worms will become sluggish in the cold, their metabolism slows down and they don't eat or breed as quickly

Therefore the first piece of advice is - if possible move the wormery into a shed, greenhouse or garage, as the temperature will be warmer

If your wormery has to stay outside, move it against a south facing wall of your house, not only will the wormery benefit from the warmth of the sun, but it might get some of the heat that comes from your house.

Insulate your wormery, wrap it in bubble wrap, or an old duvet, add cardboard or old jumpers to the inside.

Another small tip - as food composts it creates heat, certain foods like pasta, bread, cake, cereals produce more heat than others, so add a few slices of bread  into the corner of your wormery.

We empty the contents of our bokashi bucket directly onto our worm beds, the worms crawl all over it, and seem to snuggle up to it as it radiates heat like a hot water bottle.

Amazing Pictures Of Redworms & Cocoons

We are often asked about worm reproduction, and specifically what does a worm egg actually look like.

Well we came across some fabulous pictures last week of red worms and their cocoons in a wormery

so we thought that we should share them with you

In the pictures below you can clearly see the worm cocoons, little lemon shaped eggs, The cocoons start off as pale yellow eggs and eventually turn a darker brown colour . The darker the cocoon - the closer they are to hatching.
