Wormeries

Hello,

I'm new to this site and I'll probably be asking lots of questions......so apologies in advance!

We have a small garden with no room for a compost bin but would really like to make use of our kitchen scraps and thought that a wormery was probably the best option.......would be grand if you let me know what you all think please.

Thanks
Viki

Hi Viki, and welcome!
Any relation to Linzibean? :wink: We seem to be collecting a family of beans... There was a Greenbean once, too.

Anyway, yes, I think worm bins are great. Don't know whether they take up that much less space than a compost bin, though!

G'Day Viki!

Welcome to the site.....

We have a Reln worm farm made out of recycled plastic (probably only locally produced) that works really well (when I remember to feed it) and it is only about 500mm x 300mm by about 300mm high. I have heard of people making them out of polystyrene veggie boxes liberated from the green grocer.
