Worm Restaurant

With the Worm Restaurant you can keep your plants in top condition!

The idea of the Worm Resturant is that you do not burry food scraps into the soil to feed your worms, but that you have a designated place – the Restaurant. The big advantage is that you keep your hands clean, and dogs, mogooses or rats are unable to scratch out our kitchen waste from your soil.

You place the Worm Restaurant into a pot, and all you do is lift the lid to place your kitchen waste in. The worms that live in your pot have access to the restaurant whenever they are hungry. While getting rid of your food scraps, the worms will enhance the soil texture, increase water retention and promote aeration, ultimately leading to healthier plant roots.

Dog Poo Composter

Dog Poo Composter

Turn your dog poo into something valuable!

Did you know that instead of just throwing your dog poo away, you can turn the poo into something useful?

You put the dog poo and food waste into our special dog-poo-composting sets, in here are lots of Red Wiggler worms ready for action. Your dog poo, together with some food waste will be digested by the worms, who then release waste which are called worm castings. So, from dog poo, worm poo is made! The end-product is called vermicompost – this natural fertilizer is full of nutrients and has excellent growth stimulating and soil improving effects.

An important note to be made… as all pets can have diseases or parasites, vermicompost made from dog poo should not be used in your vegetable garden. But you can use it with great success in the rest of your garden!

Garden Composter

Our Garden Composter is build to last, and turns your waste into compost!

The Garden Composter is for people who want to start making their own compost. You put your kitchen waste (food scraps, egg shells, coffee grounds, egg boxes etc.) and garde waste (leaves etc.) into the top of the composter. Over time, it will become compost, which you can take out via the drawer at the bottom.

The big advantage of the Garden Composter is that it can stand in the sun, as the kitchen waste rots in the heat of the sun, compost remains.

If you want to start making vermicompost, you can also add worms to the Garden Composter.

How To Use Vermicompost

There are many factors that determine how much vermicompost is the perfect amount. But here some easy to remember guidelines:

  • We recommend going for a ratio of one part of vermicompost with 10 parts of soil
  • With most plants a notable difference can be seen at a ratio of 1:20
  • A ratio of up to 1:5 will show even better results, any more than that makes only a small difference
  • Vermicompost will not burn your plants roots, so feel free to experiment around and make sure to share your findings with us! We will include them in our blog posts.

Top dressing your plants

 Probably the easiest way to use vermicompost is to just add it to the top layer of your beds near to your plants stems.  Either work it into the ground a bit or just cover up the layer of vermicompost with some more soil or bark. You can also dig small holes and put the vermicompost inside. Then, water each plant deeply – this will help work the nutrients down into the soil.

As soil amendment

Unlike top dressing, amending your soil with vermicompost is done before the plant is set into place. In this case, you would mix potting soil or garden soil with the compost so that it is even throughout and surrounds the roots once they extend into the earth. To prepare a larger amounts of soil we recommend sticking to a ratio of 1:10 to 1:20 so it doesn’t become too expensive

For your lawn

Just as your house plants and vegetable garden benefit from the use of worm compost, so will your lawn.

A 3kg bag of our vermicompost will be sufficient for up to 12 square meters of lawn.

For pot plants

Mix it into the potting soil before you add the plant (recommended ratio 1:10). Add it near the plants stem – Two table spoons per plant are usually enough

For germinating seeds

we have had the best results if you mix the castings in a ratio of 1:2 with potting soil.

Use on transplants

To help prevent transplant shock spray roots with your “worm tea” solution (see below how to make your own worm tea)

A Few More Tips …

Now you know exactly how to get the most out of your vermicompost!

What you might also find interesting is that you can actually make a liquid fertilizer out of your vermicompost (for blog post click here). This makes applying the fertilizer much easier and will allow your plants to access the nutrients much faster as well!

Also,  if you want to take a totally new piece of land and turn it into a plant heaven – make sure you know exactly how to prepare your soil for gardening starting from scratch  (for blog post click here). You definitely need some organic material in your ground so the vermicompost can work it’s magic.

Storage of Vermicompost

The fresher the vermicompost the better; because that means the microorganisms are still very active, but if you do it correctly you can store vermicompost up to a year and use it throughout the gardening season.

Store the Vermicompost in a dark, cool place. The darker the better…as with every type of compost the sunlight will destroy some valuable nutrients.

If you have opened a bag already keep it from drying out so that the microorganisms stay active.
