Wormery juice

My husband recently installed a wormery in our garden to eat up our leftovers.  Apart from the worms trying to escape which is apparently a common problem it seems to be working well and is good for the environment.  The worms are now getting quite plump! Seeing the run off one day, I hit on the hopefully good idea of using this as liquid plant food and have been saving it for this purpose next spring. Has anyone else done this with success?

    Yes, that's what most folk do with it ... it needs diluting ... take a look here

    it tells you how to use it. :)

    I have used it but couldn't say that I have noticed any improvement in my plants. I had a wormery on the allotment and the worms regularly escaped why they did it sometimes and not others I don't know, last year I noticed that the escapees had turned up in some of my dalek bins, I know that they are escapees because my wormery has dendrobaena worms which jump and squirm unlike earth worms or brandlings so the escapees were just branching out to set up their own communities.
