Wormeries are used outdoors to compost your kitchen waste. They are neat and unobtrusive and all you have to do it add the worms and let them do all the hard work. Throughout the composting process the wormery will also produce a steady supply of liquid plant feed.

Wormeries use both cooked and uncooked kitchen scraps so nothing is wasted.

The best composting worms are reds and dendras and you should use a combination of the two. The more worms you have the faster the compost will convert, on average you should aim to have a kilogram of worms to each cubic metre of waste.

The worms can eat half their body weight in waste each day and they neutralise odours as they work.

Every couple of weeks or so they can produce a dozen baby worms so you should not have to buy any once your system has stabilised.
