Composting and wormery

Posted: 24/01/2013 at 16:21

A friend of mine gave me some worms ( He has 2 wormeries,) I got 2 cheap dustbins . Cut the top off one and stood id on an upturned bucket inside the other. put some holes in the botton of the inside bucket. put 6 inches of compost in the inner bin and food leftovers on the top. put worms in. I started mine in april and they are now going into hibernation mode .I have the most fantastic compost now and i take liquid fertilizer out of a tap i have fixed to outside bin.i have not removed compost but will eventually do so the worms have multiplied. Every so often I put some of the worms into my compost bins

I grow potatoes and tomatoes and cucumbers in pots and grobags abd potato bags and hanging baskets every year .At the end of the season I am left with half full bags pots etc of compost which I usually put on the garden.I am struggling to find more room for it and wonder if it can be topped up and reused for these crops. i do not have any blight problems todate. There is also the question of cost I grow large amounts and buy lots of bags of compost
