How do folk use worm compost apart from putting it rounds plants? Can it be added to multipurpose compost?

    I made 8 Dalek loads last year and put it all on my beds except one, which went in the bean trench .

    Is this question about garden compost-or compost from a wormery?

    I read it as the from a wormeryimage

    The thing to remember if you use garden compost with multipurpose -not only are in a sense diluting it but also composting does not necessarily kill off all the weed seeds if it doesn't generate enough heat

    That is why it is generally used as a soil conditioner-rather than a growing/sowing medium.

    But them I still don't know what is being askedimage

    Compost from a wormery is used as you would use any compost, a mulch, added to pots when potting plants into the final pot, digging into the hole when planting into the borders, just do not use it for seed trays.
    Compost unless left to mature is really only a soil enhancer, it adds soft bulk to soil allowing better drainage a softer element for the roots to work into and also some goodness, minerals and good bacteria.call it a tonic for soil.
    Zoomer worm casts on the lawns are a good thing, I use a bass broom and sweep them back into the grass, it exercises me and the lawn at the same time and proves the lawn is being aerated.

    Frank.

  • Thanks for the advice. I think i will still just use it round plants.
