I took delivery of a new toy for the garden today - a wormery. If the manufacturer is to be believed, it will be so clean and odour-free that it could be kept indoors. Mine is set up discreetly outside, next to the wheelie bins (black is for household rubbish, green is for garden waste) and the green box (for glass, cans and plastic). I suppose I could keep it in the porch next to the boots and the green recycling bag (for newspapers) but it is rather large. However, it comes with a smaller bin to collect kitchen waste to feed to the worms. This will stand next to the kitchen bin, which will now only be used for envelopes (not allowed in the green bag), plastic bottle tops (not allowed in the green box) and wire hangers from the dry cleaners (shouldn't be allowed anywhere).
The tiger worms have to be left undisturbed for a week, to settle in to their new home. That gives me time to study the handbook. Once established, I expect my wormery to take care of most of the household waste and to provide superb compost for the garden and houseplants.
