Growing mealworms for beginners.

Posted: 03/03/2014 at 13:42

Thats a great guide Edd, thanks. How many worms do you first put into your tub to start the process off?

I tried it once but things got rather smelly but I think that was because the container I used was far too small, and with not enough bran. I put out live mealworms every year to coincide with bird nesting season, so I may give it another go.

Im lucky to live reasonably close to live foodsdirect..

What would you do

Sounds exciting. Be sure to take photos before, during and afterwards. In years to come you will be grateful of them. Oh, and post them here as well please as I'd love to see them. 

Photos of your ponds please

Thanks so far. Hiding the liner is one of my priorities, as well as making it look natural. But I do love the pond in my first post, I wish I could find which member it belongs to.

Im making a new wildlife pond this year and for inspiration I wondered if any of you could post photos of your ponds please? It doesnt matter if yours isn't a wildlife pond, any natural(isn) looking pond photos would be great..

So far, I'm greatly inspired by the photo of this amazing looking pond below, which was posted here recently (sorry, can't remember by who) which I simply love. Any photos will be greatly appreciated

My garden centre doesn't sell Cosmos, but I see that Tuckers do. I assume they are a reputable supplier?
