All year round
Attach the legs and tap, add a single tray to the base unit, then lay a sheet of paper in the tray.
Soak the worm bedding block (made of coir compost) in warm water, before breaking it up into a friable mass.
Cover the paper with the compost bedding mixture, spreading it out in an even layer.
Spread the worms out over the bedding and they'll quickly start burrowing down into the material.
Cover the worms and bedding material with a thin layer of well-chopped vegetable peelings. As these begin to rot, the worms will be able to start feeding on them. Most kits also come with a mat that should be used to cover the material to maintain moisture in the bin.
Finish by putting the lid on the bin, then move it to a warm and sheltered spot, out of direct sunshine. Regularly drain liquid from the bin, and dilute it with 10 parts water, to use as a fertiliser.
