"Thanks ever so much for your excellent advice - I am delighted with the wormery - there are loads of worms in there and they are absolutely thriving. What a great and rewarding hobby. I even drain liquid from the tap at least every other day." Best wishes David

Green Gardener - the natural way to keep your garden looking good
A Wormery or Urban Composter is the easy way of converting kitchen waste into compost & liquid feed.

 

WormCity Wormery - The worms in a wormery are fast, efficient, natural composters able to eat up to half its own body weight in waste every day. Worms can compost virtually any organic kitchen waste (including veg peelings, tea leaves, coffee grounds, stale bread & hoover dust etc) turning it into FREE top quality compost (wormcasts) & liquid feed.

 

Urban composters - These small and easy to use composters use a mixture of bacteria, fungi and yeasts to safely compost your kitchen food scraps in your kitchen, which will encourage you to keep composting. These composters will turn your kitchen scraps & leftovers including meat, fish, fruit & vegetable waste into liquid feed & nutrient-rich fertiliser for your garden.

Bokashi Bran – Whether you use a Bokashi Bin or a Urban Composter to compost your kitchen scraps and leftovers, we have Bokashi Bran available to start the composting process right there in your kitchen. 

N.B. The Urban Composter used an Accelerator SPRAY, but due to a lack of stock from the manufacturer we have now reverted to stocking the bran instead, which will work in the Urban Composter as well as in Bokashi Bins

 

Bokashi Bran - This bran is sprinkled over the kitchen waste in your Bokashi Bin / Urban Composter and contains the bacteria, fungi and yeasts necessary to start the composting process. The Bokashi Bran is available in 1kg bags, which will last approx 2 months. On a daily basis, simply add your kitchen waste (including vegetable and fruit waste, meat and fish scraps, coffee grounds etc) to your composter and sprinkle a little bran over the top. The bacteria, yeasts and fungi in the bran then get to work composting the waste. Keep adding kitchen waste and bran, pressing it down as you go until the bin is full. Every 2-3 days, drain the liquid off from the bottom of the bin - this can be diluted (1:100) and used to feed plants or poured down drains to clear pipes and stop nasty odours.

Wormcity Wormery - This layered wormery is easy to use and will quickly convert your kitchen waste into FREE compost and liquid feed. Designed and manufactured in the UK, it is made from recycled UV protected plastic and is available in dark green or black. The Wormcity is delivered in a single box with a VOUCHER for the worms, so it can be easily given as a gift. It comes with either 3, 4 or 5 trays,and will  handle the kitchen waste from a family, producing top quality compost & liquid feed.

N.B. Each Wormcity Wormery is supplied with a VOUCHER for the worms, so simply let us know when you are ready to start composting (either by phone or email) and we will despatch the worms by 1st class post - this ensures they  arrive in tip top condition!


Wormcity Wormery - This stacking wormery has BIGGER trays than many others(wider and deeper), so the worms are happier, and compost faster. Each tray holds 25 litres of waste and measures 43cms wide x 43cms long and 17cm deep. The Wormcity  is very simple to assemble. It can be kept inside or out - mine is outside for the summer and in the greenhouse during the winter. Each Wormcity Wormery consists of a sturdy base, a sump tray, which collects the liquid feed and a tap. The sump holds approx 9 litres of liquid and has  "steps" (pictured right), so any worms which fall into the sump can easily climb back into the wormery. The perforated composting trays and lid are then stacked on top.  Start by adding the worms and the kitchen waste to the bottom tray. Once this is full, start filling the next tray and then the next and so on. The worms start "eating" the kitchen waste in the bottom tray and once finished, they move up to the next tray. Simply keep adding waste & filling the trays. The trays slide down inside each other, i.e. as the worms eat the waste, the trays sink down and stay in contact with each other, so the worms can easily move between the trays. By the time you have filled the top tray, the bottom tray will have fully worked compost, which can be emptied out. This empty tray is then placed on the top ready for fresh waste. The liquid fertilizer is drained regularly and needs to be diluted (10:1) before use. The 3 tray Wormcity measures 43cm x 43cm x 75cm high once assembled.

 

The Wormcity Wormery is available in dark green or black and comes complete with 3, 4 or 5 composting trays.1 x Sump (for collecting the liquid feed), 1 x Sump Tray (has steps for lost worms), 1 x Base Unit, an easy turn tap with back nut, 1 x Lid, 2 x fixing screws and Wingnuts (for attaching the wormery to the base), a Coir Block (makes 9 Litres of bedding), a VOUCHER for 250g of composting worms, 250g of worm food and instructions.

Extra Worms for the Wormcity Wormery - A worm eats up to half its own body weight in waste every day, so the more worms you start with more kitchen waste you can compost from day one. Each Wormcity Wormery comes with a voucher for 250g of worms, so why not add an extra 250g of worms i.e. 500g in total for only £10.00. N.B. 250g of composting worms are normally £12.50, so this special price is only available when purchased with the wormery. We do sell composting worms separately if you want to restock an old wormery.

 

"I thought you might be interested to know about some sun flowers I grew for my grand children. They were grown with compost from the wormery & fed throughout the summer with fertilizer from the base of the wormery. The fertilizer also fed my tomatoes, courgettes and flowers. The grandchildren were amazed by the size of the sunflowers and vegetables. The wormery was a great buy & my partner's son also received one as a present. " Alan Cross

 

"An excellent worm composting device with good instructions. Easy to set up and get going, two months after its purchase, it now houses hundreds of busy, happy worms which are enjoying eating through the kitchen waste, multiplying happily and producing the rich compost very effectively. I have added a fourth tray and  already extracted the super rich compost from the bottom tray, which I am using in my garden and greenhouse. Certainly, for any keen gardener this is an excellent purchase." From Jillian - supplied by the manufacturer
 

 

What can you put in a wormery? - Vegetable scraps, fruit and peelings, tea bags and coffee grounds,   Hoover contents and hair (including animal) shredded newspaper, egg box type cardboard, crushed egg shells, stale bread, pizza, rice & pasta, . The greater the variety of organic waste the better the resulting worm castings will be.

 

What should you not put in a wormery? - You should avoid animal manure (the animal may have been 'wormed' and the residue can kill your worms), highly acidic fruit such as citrus fruits and onions (which will turn the wormery acidic), meat and bones, products covered in fat, vinegar, garlic and spicy foods, eggs (egg shells are excellent) and dairy products. Grass / lawn cuttings, weeds and garden waste should be composted on the compost heap NOT in a wormery.

Composting Worms - With more kitchen waste being added to a wormery in the winter and the cold weather slowing down the worms activity, give your wormery a boost by adding extra worms.

A worm eats half its own body weight in waste a day, so the more worms you have, the more kitchen waste you can compost i.e. 1kg of worms will compost 500g of kitchen waste a day. Our composting worms are a mixture of Eisenia and Dendrabenas and are ideal for topping up your wormery. They are despatched by 1st class post and are sold by weight. They are also ideal for :-

  • Restocking an old wormery - Do you have a wormery hidden away in the garden shed? Why not get it working again for the new year with some new worms.
  • Building your own wormery - Fancy building your own wormery then these worms are looking for new homes.

"Some time ago you gave me some advice about my wormery.  I restocked and set it up as you suggested, and it is now thriving, so thanks for your help!" Best wishes Mary Squire
