Vermicomposting for begginers

Hi Edd! I've just been given an empty wormery that looks very similar to this (image liberated off the internet) 

http://www.envocare.co.uk/backgrounds/ourcomposter1024.jpg

 Where in the garden would be best to locate it? Would it benefit from being in the greenhouse at all or even just during the winter?

Would I just put composting material in the top level and let it rot down or put it in the bottom layer and go upwards as I fill it?

What do you suggest I add to it before the worms?

 

Thanks ever so!

HELLO FORKERS!

Oh that's quite poor! Gives us a shout if you can't get any I'll pop some in the post to you. Any excuse to visit my local pond place!

Get if off your chest.

Even if the mum is expecting the lad is old enough to be able to remember!

I hope at least his food was tasty for the others and that they had a really good night.

 

Next time he's invited / asks to attend you'll at least have a good reason to be reserved or expect his family to put him in a taxi!

Lovely sun here but we're at the families so I just have to hope the garden is dry tomorrow.

All right .... own up .... which ones of you do this?

Caters - what are you planning for your garden? Somewhere nice to sit out with a few fruits and vegetables or a more regimented self-sufficiency drive? Knowing this'll help people understand what view point you're coming from.

I'll put a photo up of the toms some time over the weekend - they've grown massively - way bigger than others I planted just a few days later but the leafs were all wilted like I'd abandoned them to dry out. Could they be getting too hot in the conservatory? I was sure I read about not feeding them til they flower and generally treating them keen but I'm not sure they look like they'll last much longer!

Mrs G - you're more than welcome to the join in the party. Be warned with this family to expect arguing, fussing, tantrums over the tiniest of things, the dogs getting higher priority on the sofa than grandfather... my family positively sit in a darkened room eating nothing but bread and water in comparison!
