This is a recycled plastic stacking wormery that comes with 3 composting trays and a base unit for collecting the worm tea, when supplied with 500g of worms it is suitable for a family of 4 or 5 It is a compact system,each composting tray has a capacity of 16.5 litres. We have found over the years that the ideal capacity for a stacking tray is between 15 and 20 litres, anything bigger is very heavy to lift when full. The basic 3 tray system is suitable for a family of 4 or 5. You can buy additional composting trays for £10.00, we recommend not using more than 6 trays per wormery. Each tray sits on the one below so the worms can work their way up and down. Although we think it is a great system as it stands, we sell it with a few add ons - we send you a fine mesh to put in the bottom composter to help stop worms falling through into the tray that collects the liquid. We also give you a cardboard square to put on top of the food waste to keep it nice and dark,the worms will eventually eat it and then you can replace it yourself. As well as the instructions provided by the manufacturer we send you our own additional hints and tips.Additional trays can be purchased if you are composting lots of food waste.

They were designed for people for whom space is at a premium and instead of a lid they have a planter so you can grow herbs or whatever you fancy on top. Not everyone is green fingered so there is the option of a wooden lid instead of a planter.
The 'urn' allows you to collect the liquid produced and use it as a nutritious plant feed, having an urn means these wormeries can be used inside as well as out.
Cheap and Cheerful Stacking Wormery includes 300g composting worms in bedding
We breed worms on our worm farm in Worcestershire. Years of worm farming have shown us that wormeries work best with a mix of species of UK worms, including Dendrobaena and Eisenia fetida. We hand harvest them on the day of dispatch and add them to bedding from our breeding beds, this provides an environment they are happy to live in so they arrive to you in tip top condition. The bedding often contains some cocoons which will hatch and produce baby worms.
This is a simple, easy to use wormery.
