Worm colonies are earthworms contained in a bio-degradable box. Instead of having to dig multiple holes to plant loose earthworms, all you need to do is simply dig one hole every 3 square metres, place the box in the hole, water, and cover with soil.

The key advantages of this product are:

  • no need to handle the worms directly
  • less effort due to fewer holes needing to be dug
  • the worms are not suddenly introduced into a new environment
  • as the box degrades the worms will move out at their own pace

Our worm colonies are ideal for both household gardens as well as large landscaping projects.

Each colony contains 25 of the large deep burrowing earthworms – Lumbricus terrestris and 150g of mixed (around 200) shallower soil dwelling earthworms. The container size is 15cm (6″) long x 10cm (4″) wide x 11.5cm (4.5″) deep, the box can be planted anyway up which means it will need a hole around 25cm (10″) deep to accommodate it.

If you require a different number of colonies than shown, please give us a call on 01245 381933 and we will be happy to give you a price.
