Got Worms? Get this…
“Whilst you have to dig around the net for good worm guide-n-guru’s (of which the author also appears & is both highly regarded AND contactable within the uk) ..the internet can be a major distraction when you actually wish to do more than simply browsing.
Which is why I purchased this excellent book, it fills the gaps of knowledge that can make or break a wormery, save you time with explanations of the micro-climate that is a developing wormery & when to hold your horses as to assumed mistakes on the worried owners part.
Without this book I would be a rubbish worm-keeper & recycler, with it I’ve gained great knowledge & kept my worms alive, recycled successfully, bred loads of babies (well they’re captive in the wormery & breed)…so many mistakes avoided thanks to this book.
Replacing your worms should you go horribly wrong is expensive, this book is cheap, you can dip into it & keep it as a point of reference & then leave the worms to do what they do best, recycle.
Ace book that settles the nerves of the beginner. Wormeries ought to come with it as standard, it’s short but concise & covers pretty much everything!
