Worms in compost

lorraine ocarroll asked 10 years ago

I potted up some houseplants in peat free compost last year. Now I can see tiny worms round the base of the pots, obviously coming out of the compost. Is there a way to get rid of them? I really don’t like having worms crawling around the floor!

The present of tiny worms is an indicator that the compost has been too wet. Allow it to dry for a couple of weeks so that the surface is almost dry to touch and do no water so much in future.
