I Am going to be sent Composting with Worms by G.Pilkington by the good people at Eco-logic for review. Will place something here when I have had a look, has anyone else read it in the mean time?

Er better late than never :oops: There are a lot of books out there about composting with worms but most are American, it does not seem to be as popular over here. I think that this book tries to address that. I found it very informative and useful for composters as well as worm composters.

Although I have seen many worms I did not give it a second thought that there were many varieties out there, some better than others for your wormery.

The one thing that I thought this book lacked was diagrams - although saying that it probally because most gardening books are full of them. This book has the diagrams you need for setting up a wormery but that is it. But do you need any more than that?

See the above post for more details.

Diagrams are important I think... and I guess it depends on the audience... if it's a more 'professional' book then you would expect fewer diagrams than if it were a book aimed at beginners.

Looking forward to hearing about the book you are reading Nev!
