just found my first flatworm in Perth Scotland and they do decimate earthworms as my colleague in Wolfhill will confirm. The bedding thrown on the ground from his rabbit hutch used to disappear over time but since the discovery of flatworms now just lies there and accumulates.
The earthworms are no longer there in numbers to remove the bedding as they did before.
I've never heard flatworms mentioned on Gardeners World even when all that plant swapping fairs are going on. How can we stop them spreading if they are never mentioned.
