Forum home The potting shed


I've been out in the garden today turning over borders and planting stuff,  happy I was and away with the mixer when it suddenly dawned on me that there are no worms in the garden,  normally when I start digging the first sod has at least 3 worms in this is nt a good sign is it,  lack of worms means no air in the soil or even food for the birds,  I know they don't go that far down in the soil I just hope that I was unlucky in my digging but somehow I don't think so.

    Maybe they've gone a bit deeper than you were digging because of the foul weather?

  • I do hope so figrat otherwise we're in big trouble,   just hope they are in hiding from me image

  • Think any worms with sense will be be down where it's warm, or at least not frozen.  We've had snow on the ground for over a week now, it's mostly gone but still there if in a shady area.  Or if selfish gits have piled it either side of their drive (ex-wheelchair user, current pushchair user).

    I should warm up soon, I hope!
