Increase the chances of growing success in your garden by producing your own nutrient-rich compost
. A Guttermate wormery is an excellent eco-friendly
method of providing both compost and bio-rich plant food
for use in your garden. It’s a simple but effective
method which uses the natural digestive system and feeding behaviour of worms to convert your cat and dog poo into valuable by-products
The pack contains everything you need to get started making your own compost including some Tiger worms and a detailed guide for setting up. Once running the wormery requires nothing more than a top-up with animal waste. The wormery can be used for either animal or food waste but you should only ever supply one diet to your worms at a time. You’ll be diverting waste away from landfill, saving money from further store-bought garden compost and plant food and the wormery itself is made from recycled plastic to help contribute to more sustainable trading and reduce reliance on single use plastics.
A lot of commercial wormeries rear worms on manure as it makes for excellent quality compost. We do recommend however that compost harvested from animal waste is not used on vegetable patches or in areas where small children are likely to come into contact. The compost will greatly benefit flower beds or shrubberies and can be used as an excellent soil conditioner to boost your overall garden nutrition.
