My Red Worms (aka Brandling Worms) have been very
busy this last 3 months. I now have a compost bin full of
seed sowing compost. Was wondering how to treat this
gardening bonus, and keep the bin filled for the winter months with material for them to keep warm in. They dont seem to do much chewing whilst I cling to my central heating, make a ‘den’ in the centre as they know that is the warmest place. They are fascinating tiny creatures, they do have brains too.
I will cover the bin, to help keep them warm .
Decided (while splitting a stock of cardboard for my hard
working Gerbils) to remove the seed sowing compost and
store in clear plastic bags in a large box in the dry shed.
Cut down the Clematis, but not put it in the council bin as usual for their Garden Waste collection. Put it in my almost empty compost bin with Gerbil litter, as the Clematis stalks are a bit tough. Hope they soften up a bit. Also any uncooked vegetable scraps (not potato, onion, or citrus peelings). Hope this keeps them warm, busy and happy all winter.
