You are going to be away on holiday and you are worried that the worms in your wormery might expire in your absense.
Have no fear – just soak newspapers in water and place them on top of the food in your wormery. One wet newspaper for each week you will be away.
Please note that this will keep your wormery worms happy for up to three weeks.
For those who do not have a wormery, it is time you did! A wormery is a clean odourless container housing (earthworm-type) worms that you feed on kitchen and garden waste. The worms digest the waste turning it into great compost and liquid fertiliser. Great for growing flowers and organic vegetables.
Great for you. Great for the planet.
