Is your wormery prepared for winter?

Over on the Wiggly Wigglers blog I have just posted a small article on how you can look after your wormery over the Winter months.

It takes you through some of the things you need tokeep it as warm as possible so it doesn't freeze during the worst of the winter and how to  keep it dry by using a moisture mat (or extra paper and cardboard) as well as a rain cap to keep the majority of the rain off.

Wiggly Wigglers 2010 Catalogue

Earlier in the year Heather from Wiggly Wigglers asked me to write a piece on composting and wormeries for their forthcoming catalogue.

I was really pleased with how they presented the article and I've had some great feedback about it (it caused some great discussions on the use of teabags as well) *

Anyway, the catalogue is soon to replaced by another edition and Heather kindly let me have a PDF version of my article. You can read/download it here.

* I still compost teabags, both in the wormery and the compost bin as I would rather have the odd "teabag ghost" than add to the methane build-up in landfill. If you'd rather not have the ghosts then it's worth trying tea leaves. I can heartily recommend Trumpers loose leaf tea as an alternative to tea bags, though to be honest I still like my PG Tips as well (sacrilege I hear some of you cry) :)
