Worm Farms Perth and WA
With the sandy soils of the west any fertilizer or organic matter that can be returned to the soil is a wonderful addition, and one free supply is from your own worm farm. Worm farm suppliers for Perth and WA include both online worm farm suppliers and retail outlets for Perth Wa and Rural Western Australia.
In kit form worm farms are easy to start, they come supplied with not only the farm itself, but also the right type of composting worms. Both red wrigglers and tiger worms are suitable, these are types with big appetites and rather than feed deep in the soil, they like to feed near the surface.
Although you can make your own worm farm from polystyrene boxes, bathtubs and even timber, the commercial worm farms made from UV stabilized PVC are a great way to start.
- Look for a system with 3 layers and a liquid collection tray at the bottom. Make sure that the lid is protected from rain as this can flood the worm farm.
- A good drainage system from the collection tray is essential, and the tap in this will be left on at most times to allow the moisture to drain away. We place a small watering can beneath the tap and use this as a collection system.
- As Perth and WA has a warm climate you will need to locate your worm farm out of direct sun.
