Worms

Posted: 22/12/2013 at 21:21

hi,i breed worms for fishing as well as for composting,usually the worms come out of the compost if it gets to hot,try turning it with a fork every four weeks or so to allow it to cool a little,the name is brandling but if very red they are most likely dendrobaena.ps dont put fruit skins like orange peel in it or it will alter the ph and kill them,hope that helps,tom.

you can grow them here without much trouble, they will die down every year but if you cover the crown from the hardest winters they should grow every year,start them in the spring the same time as tomatoes.plant south facing when large enough.

i've been using this for years now and it is great but don't get any on you because it takes an age to get the smell out,brassica's and beets love this.
