Wormery gone LIVE!!

With the help of a re-start pack from Wiggly Wiggler the 'Can-O-Worms' wormery this morning was kick started into life. The worms seemed happy in there new home and furiously burrowed into the new bedding material. The wormery will produce incredibly rich compost and liquid feed for the plants.

The following is a list of what the worms love, so please feel free to collect at home and then add to the top tray underneath the moisture mat. The key is to cut the food up before adding and add small amounts often:

- Cooked food scraps
- Tea leaves
- Coffee grounds
- Vegetable peelings
- Dried and crushed egg shells
- Shredded and scrunched paper or cardboard
- Vacum cleaner dust, hair, wool and cotton
- Horse and cow manure
