Where to position your compost bin
Your bin is best place on soil, in a sunny place in your garden. This helps the bin to absorb and trap heat, providing the energy needed to keep working through the night and on cooler days.
Creating a worm farm at home is one of the best things you can do for your garden. Both the solid and liquid products are used as soil improvers and fertilisers.
Where to position your worm farm
Position your worm farm in a shady place e.g. on your balcony, down the side of your house, in your garage, or even inside your home.
