How To Make A Worm Farm
Worms make a huge contribution to composting. They help break down decomposing organic matter and in the process neutralise soil pH. This happens when they release a thick, black paste called castings.
If you don’t have the space for a compost heap, set up a worm farm to turn food scraps into fertiliser. You can buy a ready-made farm or make one DIY in a few easy steps.
A worm farm is a tiered system of containers with a lid. It needs ventilation, drainage and an outlet tap for directly draining the nutrient-rich liquid.
TIP Buy composting worms from garden centres.
