Worm composting (or vermicomposting) utilises special composting worms to turn kitchen waste into compost and liquid feed for your garden. The worms and kitchen waste are put in a container know as a wormery, wormeries are much smaller than conventional compost heaps or bins and can be kept by the back door of your house for convenience. The compost produced from worm composting is very different to conventional compost, it is great for boosting lawns or spreading on flowerbeds.
Worm Composing - the facts Will it smell? The answer to that is: when fed properly (see below) there is virtually no smell, only a pleasant aroma, typical to a woodland floor (dendrobaena worms are native to woodland areas, where they compost leaves and dead vegetation.
Worm Casts: the by-product of vermi-composting (composting with worms), is one of the best known natural plant fertilisers. It is virtually all utilised by the plant. ie. If you potted up a plant in 50% sand and 50% worm cast, you will eventually be left with only the sand, and very small amount of inert worm cast. You can produce these casts yourself by feeding your compostable kitchen waste to your worms.
How Many Worms Do I Need? Dendrobaena worms will consume half their bodyweight of food a day so if you are composting 1Kg of waste per day, then you will need 2Kg of worms.
