Easily assembled but quite heavy. Screw holes would be better drilled fully to ease tightening, but basically straightforward instructions. Surprisingly long time (2-3 months) predicted for population by worms, before which I can apparently add little new vegetation.
Very nice product, neat and clean looking. Once assembled, it looked so cosy, I almost moved in myself. Normally I hate flat packs but this was easy enough to assemble. Pay attention to the alignment of the roof panels and hinge, as this is crucial to to the opening and closing of the lid. It takes about 2 hours to assemble, maybe less if you are adept with an electric screwdriver. I already had a small wormery but I am now recycling loads more kichen and house-hold waste than I was with my smaller wormery. The the worm cast produced has keep the garden flowering long after it should have died back and my lemon harvest is the best ever. So all in all, it appeals to the penny pincher in me who doesn't have to go to the dump quite as often and the gardener in me who loves what it does for the flowers. The only down side was the time I had to wait for delivery. It seemed that Harrods was having problems sourcing the product but it was well worth waiting for.
Feeding Your Worms
In order to produce the wonderfully rich worm cast and equally as palatable (for the garden of course) liquid residue, you’ll need to feed your worms well. Fortunately they’re not too fussy and will happily munch through similar food to ourselves, but there are some dishes that worms will turn their noses up at.
Here’s an idea of what to feed them.
Vegetables and peelings,Fruit and peelings (but go easy on citrus), Tea bags and coffee, Bread (including pizza), Rice, Pasta, Cereals, Crushed egg shells (they must be crushed), Cakes and biscuits, Sugar, Cheese and Baked Beans
I’d also like (but we wouldn’t!)…
Cardboard and paper
Contents of the hoover bag
Leaves (but not too many)
I’ll pass on…
Meat, Bones, Perennial weeds, Weed seeds, Diseased plant material and poisonous plants, Garlic, Spicy foods, Onion skins, Eggs, Dairy Products, Salt, and Oils, Bon appetite!
