What to feed your worms
Your worms will eat any dead and decaying kitchen waste such as peelings, bread, cooked and uncooked scraps, broken up egg shells, tea, coffee grounds and even paper kitchen towels.
Be aware, fruit and vegetable scraps have a high water content (around 85%), so no additional water should be added to your Wormery.
Essentially, your Wormery is designed to deal with kitchen generated food waste, however the odd handful of leaves, grass or similar garden waste may been used from time to time.
You do not want to add too much onion, leek or citrus fruit peel into your Wormery either, as this can make the environment of your Wormery too acidic.
When these items are added you should add a small handful of the lime mix provided (or broken eggs shell if you do not have any lime mix left) to help
keep the pH levels neutral.
Lime Mix: This mix will ensure that the environment in the wormery is stable and non-acidic. Simply add a handful every month, or more if you use lots of acidic fruits. Typically this bag should last you about 6 months.
Worms: Tiger Worms are the best worms you can use in your wormery for worm composting. They're supplied in soil and in breathable pouches.
Coir Block: Approx 650 grams in weight. Coconut Coir is extracted from the husk on the outer shell of a coconut and has an excellent water holding capacity.
