My wormery works OK and the fruit flies live ok with the worms...food for spiders is the flies!
There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature? the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter. -   Rachel Carson

I only have a half-plot, WG. Do you think your design will work if it's scaled down, to 1mx1m say?
For those who are struggling to find worms, simply ask at your local allotment site. Most will have old heaps writhing with brandlings and won't mind parting with a few handfuls.

Yes, the frame pictured is a little over 1m x 1m and contains 8 bags or so.  The area you require will be determined by the amount of material you want them to eat.  Most wormery failures are attributable to over-feeding.

Hi ther. If you have a fishing tackle shop near you just buy some tiger worms from there. If you want to make your own wormery phone the coucil for some free recycling bins and put a brick in the bottom one, in the next one up put soaked cardboard in the bottom and kitchen scraps (Ihang mine in plastic carrier outside for 2 weeks) not too many, lots of egg shell, banana skins, even bread thats gone off. I've been doing mine since last summer and it's going great guns. Just keep adding layers the worms will work their way u. The liquid goes down to the bottom and as the worms move ever upwards what is left behind is fabulous compost. Jan :lol:
I know less today than I did yesterday, and I knew nothing then!
