Darcy (official wormery guard)
Worms. Yes, this family loves them. They munch quietly in their special box all that is popped within. They are supreme in their greenness - but tiger coloured (tiger in name too). The liquid plant feed they generate is heaven for plants and goes such a long way diluted and stored for months.
I love visiting them each morning.
We bought our wormery from: www.originalorganics.co.uk who were excellent all round, but there are plenty of sites selling a range of models and a wealth of information out there.
If you cannot fit in a compost heap (both is best of course) then a wormery is for you! Personally, we rather prefer interacting with tiger worms.
