Wormery back in use
31 January 2010 20:29:45
I went out this afternoon - around 3pm - with the sole purpose of emptying out 2 containers and one hanging basket, all of which had lavender growing in them last summer and all of which have died due to the bad weather. One of these lavenders was Munstead and another was called Hidcote, both of which are English lavenders and are supposed to be the hardiest of all the English lavenders. However, mine are definately dead.
When I went to empty the containers, the top inch was frozen solid. I was surprised as it was the afternoon and both containers were located in the sun!
The contents of all three are now in the wormery with shredded paper on top of each tray and an empty plastic milk carton under the tap for the run-off. I know it might take a while and in very small doses, but I do love getting the juice out of the wormery.
