    I bought mine, it cost a fortune and is amazingly, well, shall we say 'compact' for the price.

    Best stick with Edd and build one if you are going to get serious about it. image 

    I'm only using my bought one now as overwintering quarters as it fits in my boiler room, come the spring going to build a much better one.

  • I first bought a Wormery some 20 years ago.  It worked very well but I think it was pretty expensive even then.

    As Gemma says, look at Edd's thread......all the advice, help and info for starting your own........a much better bet I thinkimage

    I noticed a big increase in the cast production very soon after adding the powdered egg shell. Got the next batch of shells from over Christmas and New Year to crush up and add tomorrow. image

    If you are going to buy one don't get the ones from bestecoshop . I wanted one for my birthday in the summer and my better half bought that one - far too small image

    I have a black bin with 4 small holes in the bottom and shredded paper , some compost from the local GC , kitchen vegetable scraps , some egg shells

    If this is all I need then I will get some worms locally

    Please confirm

    Does it go in my conservatory or must it go outside and if so does it need a rat proof top,
