Worms (2)

You are welcome to visit the worm farm to see the worms in action. Worms are wonderful creatures that have spent millenia aerating, tilling and fertilising the soil. There are more than 2,000 species of earthworm and they are found all over the world, different species perform different functions. The worms that we breed here on Bubble House Worm Farm are all native to these shores and they all play their part in soil improvement. Deep burrowing Lumbricus terrestris is the species that you want if the aim is to improve the texture and fertility of your soil. For composting and wormeries we breed a mixture of three of the best composting worms, Eisenia fetida, Lumbricus rubellus and Dendrobaena venata. They all have slightly different likes and dislikes with regard to food and environment and we have discovered that a mix of the three works best for vermicomposting and luckily they cohabit perfectly happily. All our worms are hand harvested and sent to you in a bag in a box with plenty of safe bedding.The bedding is taken from our breeding beds, it is an environment the worms feel at home in, this means they travel well and arrive to you in peak condition. Alternatively they will live happily in their bag for a month or so as the bedding contains plenty of nutrients to keep them going. The bedding also contains all the micro-organisms that are needed to get your worm composting off to a great start.

Worms for soil improvement

Worms for soil improvement

Worms are wonderful creatures that have spent millenia aerating, tilling and fertilising the soil. There are more than 2,000 species of earthworm and they are found all over the world, different species perform different functions. The worms that we breed here on Bubble House Worm Farm are all native to these shores and they all play their part in soil improvement. Deep burrowing Lumbricus terrestris is the species that you want if the aim is to improve the texture and fertility of your soil. Surface dwelling worms such as eisenia and dendrobaena also help with soil improvement but you need to add organic matter as a food source. Lumbricus terrestris ( lob worms ) for soil improvement. These worms are truly soil inhabiting species: they make permanent burrows that penetrate deep into the soil. The burrows are important in maintaining soil aeration, drainage and porosity by increasing the rate at which water can penetrate the deeper soil layers. They pull organic matter down into their burrowa where they consume it, break it up and mix it with soil mineral particles to form water soluble aggregates. These worms would hate to live in a wormery because they don't like their burrows being disturbed but they will do your soil the power of good. Make sure the soil is damp before you add your worms. It helps if you dig shallow holes to pop the worms in then cover them back over with thw soil. Add roughly 10 per square metre, you don't have to be too accurate and could put in about 20 at a time and use less holes. If you can cover the soil you have replaced with bits of old carpet, weed free membrane or cardboard for a week or two it will stop birds routing around where they spot freshly dug soil.
