What is a worm tower, you might ask? 

 A worm tower is, essentially, a mini worm farm that you plant in the garden and it continually feeds your garden and provides you with a rich, ongoing source of fertilizer. 

They are low cost to get started, straightforward to fit, nearly effortless to maintain and will last for many years.

Step 1:  Choose a place for it in your garden.

Step 2:  Dig a hole and pop the tower in.

Step 3:  Add compost worms about 100g – 200g ( We don’t supply) 

Step 4:  Start adding food waste. (Remember worms don’t have teeth, so chop the waste as finely as possible)  

The only real question to ask yourself is, Why don’t I already have one?

Scientifically, it has been demonstrated that worm castings are highly beneficial for enhancing soil structure and sustaining plant growth. The Worm Tower plays a crucial role in enriching the soil, which, in turn, supports the life and growth of plants. The Better Plants Worm Tower offers an improved worm composting solution to meet your garden’s requirements throughout the year. It is designed with a significant emphasis on providing effective drainage and optimal air circulation to the soil. Furthermore, it boasts an uncomplicated setup process, thanks to its vertical design, making it easily deployable in your garden or home kitchen. You can rest assured that worms won’t escape from this well-structured system.

What is a Worm Tower, and why do you need it in your garden?

Think of the Worm Tower as a miniature worm production factory right in your own space. The Worm Tower is essentially a bin set into the ground, providing a passage for worms to move in and out of the tower through strategically placed holes. You can deposit compostable waste into the tower, and the worms will ingest it, transforming it into valuable castings that enrich the soil in your garden.

How does Worm Tower work?

The Worm tower is one of the oldest techniques used by gardeners to fertilize the soil naturally. By partially burying a worm tower in your garden, you create an environment that attracts worms. You can then use it as a receptacle for your kitchen waste to feed these worms. In exchange, they will process this waste and leave behind their nutrient-rich worm castings, which will serve as a natural fertilizer for your garden soil. These worm towers are easily installed and require little maintenance. To maintain the worm population in the tower, it’s advisable to remove the worm castings annually and replenish the tower with more worms.

What kind of waste can work best as worm food?

Various kitchen waste items, such as banana peels, carrot skins and tops, vegetable peels, apples, tomatoes, and assorted vegetables, can serve as suitable food sources for the worms. In addition to kitchen waste, you can also utilize materials like grass clippings, dried leaves, paper waste, toilet paper rolls, junk mail, and any other paper-based materials in the worm tower.

How to install a worm tower in your garden?
  • The height of the worm tower is 800mm, or 1m tall.
  • To install the worm tower, dig a hole in the soil 30cm deep and 18cm wide
  • Fix the worm tower in this hole and fill the soil around it to cover it.
  • Now add some compost and worms to the worm tower, and you are good to go.
