Manage Kitchen Waste & Produce High Quality Plant Food With Your Own Worm Works Wormery

The worm works is clean and easy to use, inexpensive and easy to maintain. It is faster than normal composting and produces a very high nutrient compost in an environmentally safe way.

The Worm Works Wormery is like a little magic compost factory. This unit produces extremely fertile garden compost plus a potent liquid fertilizer. Just as worms convert organic matter into fertilizer in your garden soil they can also turn your kitchen waste into dark, nutrient rich compost.

The worm works is a complete kit and includes 3 worm trays, a collecting tray, a dispenser tap and a lid. Once you have the kit set up use the contact number on the voucher provided and we'll send you your box of live worms! (Worms and postage included). The wormery comes with very clear and comprehensive instructions and a quick look guide printed permanently on the lid.

What do worms eat?

Basically you put the same materials in a wormery as you do on the compost heap. It's a good idea to chop food into small pieces as this speeds up the composting time. It's better to feed little and often rather than filling your wormery in one go.

Here's what you can put in the wormery:

Fruit and vegetable peelings.
Tea leaves, bags and coffee grounds.
Flower and soft leaves (Avoid hard stems).
Torn up paper and cardboard. Avoid shiny or glossy magazine paper.
Pasta, bread and cereal.
Small amounts of leaves, straw or grass cuttings.

 

Does the wormery need a lot of attention?
If you stick to the right food for the worms and feed little and often as suggested it's really very easy. It does take a few weeks for the worm composter to get going properly so don't be disappointed if not much happens at the beginning.

The worms will become inactive in cold winter temperatures so it's best to move them indoors at this stage. Covering with a blanket in a garage or shed is perfect.

In the summertime keep out of direct sun as the worms will die if allowed to get to hot, partial shade is fine.

 

Kit includes:

  • 3 worm trays
  • Drainage tray
  • Comprehensive instruction manual
  • Base stand
  • Tap
  • Bedding Materials
  • Lime Mix
  • Voucher for live worms (Delivery included)

Dimensions - 42cm wide x 42cm deep x 46cm high. The height will increase to 52/55cm once the unit is full.

My friend recommended this as he's a real green thumb. It arrived in good time and it took a few days for the worms to arrive. I'd never expected to be getting worms in the mail to be honest! I've found that it produces a good fertile mix of compost but you will need to be patient. Overall I can see a huge improvement in my garden since I started putting this on the soil.

If I kept the wormer in the house would it be smelly,

Its not smelly at all Gillian however when you take the top off to add to it in the warmer months you can get fruit flies coming out and you may not want them in your house. That said i keep mine indoors in the winter so that it doesn't freeze and this is not an issue.

Hi Fiona. Sorry about that. I will put the measurements on the website now. The Wormerys are 42cm wide x 42cm high x 46cm high when assembled but as it fills up the height will increase to about 50/55cm
