my compost bin is full of wonderful earth worms, but is it okay to leave them in the compost when i fill the large pots that i use for growing tomatoes and herbs etc.



Wont do any harm in the pots though Bulba and I tend to remove them as it is nicer for the worm.

the worms will leave the pots if there not happy but i would remove the obvious ones . i feed my tire track eal 2 lob worms a day . i bye them bye the 50 in like a double size chineze take away tub and keep them in the fridge . it takes aprox 2 weeks for the eal to hand feed them . bye that time the worms have recycled all the earth in the tub . this is brilliant in a bed or a lawn but i wouldnt think it would be so good in a small pot .
