I've just had a look at the "tiger wormery" and it looks quite a good one, as you say it’s probably not a good idea to order worms just yet as they will be in the post for a couple of days and may get left in freezing conditions on route. I believe that some composters can be left indoors as they shouldn't smell if they are working properly. My womery is left outdoors on my allotment and as it is different to yours the worms can escape out of the sides of the boxes which they do if the conditions are not to their liking, your boxes look to have a tighter fit than mine so if they were indoors the worms wouldn't escape. As for putting them outdoors be sure to put them in the shade as when the weather warms up they will cook in the full sun. I only feed my worms leafy material as I found that too much fruit can change the soil conditions especially when the weather is hot and the fruit ferments. Good luck with your wormery you will find that if you give the worms the conditions that they like they will look after themselves and you will get some lovely compost from them.
