    Very interesting, never thought a wormery could give me anything better than a compost heap and a pile of leaf mould , combined with my comfrey liquid . But it looks as though they are very efficient systems, I like the idea of putting one outside the kitchen door, so might put one on my Christmas present list.

    For me, it’s the liquid feed that’s the best thing about the wormery. I dilute it by about 10:1 and, if I remember, try and use it once a week. Stinks to high heaven, though – don’t do your houseplants with it just before you’ve got people coming round for lunch. Jx

      I was concerned the feed might be too rich for flowers and produce too much green growth? …seeminly not.

    Great post :) We don’t have one. We’ve ummed and ah’d but never actually got one. Of course, we do have Compost Heaps and our own Chicken & Pig Manure. It’ll be interesting to see hwo you get on and maybe we’ll get one… one day.

      They’re not too expensive…if it makes me feel as smug as my mate Guy, it’ll be money very well spent. :)

        PS love your jamin’ post Mo. I get very frustrated with blogger blogs because for some reason I can’t ‘comment’ on them….even when logged into blogger….I have googled my problem and I am not alone (though the issue is rare) but a solution cannot be found. It must be a setting in my machine…I feel I am greatly missing out being able to develop links with other bloggers and most use blogger and not wordpress (I can comment in W/P)
        :( grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

          I had the same trouble a while ago and couldn’t even comment on our own Blog. I tried most of the suggested ‘fixes’ and eventually it righted itself but I’m not sure how or why. Got to the point I considered migrating to WP, maybe I will one day…
