I have a compost heap and of course with the cold weather things have slowed down; would it be worth buyng a half kilo or so of worms to put in the compost bin to speed things up?



No, not really. At least not until the temperature begins to climb again, when the ones already in it will begin to work again.

It is natural and normal for compost to slow down in mid winter. As Owdb says it will get going again as the weather improves.

Thank you guys, I will just have to exercise some patience.
