Not all Wormeries Are The Same ...... Check Before You Buy ..........

There are a few similar looking wormeries available on Ebay that are being imported from China, Unfortunately the sellers of these wormeries FAIL to tell you the actual volume (how much they hold)

We know that our competitors wormeries only hold 16 litres per tray, compared to the 25 litre size from Wormcity.

Also our competitors wormeries have holes all up the apex of the lid, this allows flies and other insects to enter your wormery

Please take a moment to see if what looks like a good deal now - will end in dissapointment in the future.



The Wormcity Wormery - Built In England For Happy Worms

Please Note This Wormcity Wormery  DOES Contain Worms (500g), Bedding and Worm Food. - Everything You Need To Get Started

Introducing the Wormcity Wormery made from Recycled UV Protected plastic (this stops the wormery going brittle in the sun), this wormery is both functional and attractive.
Designed in Hampshire and Manufactured in Dorset. This is the only plastic stacking wormery - made specifically for worms - that has been Made In England
Every other purpose built plastic wormery has been imported from China, Australia or America.

It can be placed anywhere in your home or garden warrenty(though not in full sun) and will create an attractive focal point that will be sure to get all your neighbours talking (and wanting one !).

Designed for family use this wormery is 60% bigger than similar looking wormeries. You might be able to buy a cheaper similar product, but you would need 8 composting trays to match the 125 litre size that is on sale here.

The Wormcity Wormery is an easy to use stacking wormery, this 100 litre model comprises of the following

  • 4 x Composting Trays 25 Litres (100 Litres Total)
  • 1 x Sump (for Liquid Collection)
  • 1 x Sump Tray
  • 1 x Base Unit Stand
  • 1 x Easy Turn Tap and Back Nut
  • 1 x Lid
  • 2 x Screws and Wingnuts
  • Instructions
  • 500g (approx) Composting Worms
  • 1 x Coir Block Bedding
  • 250g (approx) Worm Food
  • 43cm x 43cm x 90cm height (approx if all trays were completely full)

Our Wormcity Wormery is very simple to use. It comes with full colour instructions and a leaflet that contains loads of helpful advice.

It also comes with a 5 year manufacturers guarantee and a "no quibble" return if your not entirely happy with this outstanding wormery.

Why You Should Buy The Wormcity ® Wormery

25 Litre Per Tray = 100 Litre Wormery = Biggest Surface Area = Smallest Footprint

wormeryThere are many similar looking wormeries available in the UK however most of them are far too small to do the job properly.

Unfortunatly wormeries that are advertised for family use, often can't even handle the waste of one person - let alone four or more.
So what may actually seem like a bargin (a low cost Chinese import) will end up more costly as extra trays would need to be bought to handle the waste.

When we designed the Wormcity Wormery we wanted it to be suitable for families - thats why the wormcity composting trays are 25 litres in volume, this means that each composting tray, is 60% bigger than its similar looking rivals. you would need 8 tray versions to match the size of ours.

wormworksSee for yourself the difference in size !

Our wormery measures 43 centimeters square and about 90 centimeters high.     (if you filled each composting tray full of waste the total height would be around 90cms HOWEVER as the worms eat the food in the lower levels the volume will drop and the trays will slide into one another so your wormery will always be less than this height)

Specially Designed Sump

wormeryWorms can be naughty.

Give them a lovely compost tray, with lots of fresh (mouldy) fruit and veg to eat, and what do they do ....

They wander downwards - and set up home in the sump.

Unfortunatly its not possible to stop this, unless you put a proper barrier in place, so just accept that it will happen, and it won't bother you.

Because of this, we added little steps to our wormery sump. The worms happily sit on these, and when they get bored they can easily clamber up and back into the composting tray.

Strong Base - Will Not Collapse

wormeryThe Wormcity wormery has screws holding the base and sump together.
When we were doing our trials we found out that by making 'legs' (by cutting away the plastic) actually made the wormery less stable.

Obviously when all the trays are full they can be quite heavy, therefore we needed to design a base that wouldn't warp or bend. So by keeping it in one piece makes it very strong and sturdy


Trays Rest On The Food Below

wormerySome other wormeries have a ridge round the inside, which prevents the wormery trays from sliding completly down.

This causes a big problem, as the food actually drops in volume once eaten by a worm.

A cabbage when eaten by a worm will come out the size of a cherry tomato (!) so if a space appears between the trays - worms can't freely move upwards.
The Wormcity trays always rest on the food below, allowing the worms to move freely up (or down) Worms cannot jump !

Sold With A Minimum Of 500g Composting Worms

wormeryThe Wormcity Wormery is sold with 500g mixed composting worms.

Babies, Worm eggs and fully mature adults are all sent with the wormery in a breathable bag.

500g is the minimum amount of worms needed to start a wormery off successfully. The more worms you start with the quicker they will breed, and the more they will eat.

The biggest reason for failure when starting a wormery is because the worms are overfed. Therefore it makes sense to start with a many worms as possible

Our worms are a mixture of Red / Tiger Worms (Eisenia andrei / fetida) & Dendrobaena Worms (Eisenia hortensis) and are sent with the wormery

Designed And Manufactured By Wormcity Ltd = Quality Wormeries Since 2004

wormeryWith so many years of worm composting experience behind us, we wanted to design a wormery that stood out from the crowd.

We didn't want to import a Chinese / Australian or American wormery .

We wanted to produce a wormery that was strong, easy to manage, environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing to look at.

We wanted a wormery that was big enough for a family to use, that was easy to set up and simple to maintain

So... We Created The Wormcity Wormery. Made In England From Recycled Plastic !

Still Undecided ? Read What Our Customers Say
You can clearly see from our feedback that we sell a fabulous product, and give excellent service, however ebay doesn't give space for customer reviews, so here are just a few that we have received.

 5 of 5 Stars! Hallo everyone and greetings from the Cheshire Master Composters or Waste Reduction Volunteers as we are now known.
Just received my Wormcity Wormery and having seen and tried out a few  different versions of wormeries recently in my opinion this is the best  yet.
We do composting talks to various groups and shows and going into schools etc to help set up compost bins the children are always  most fascinated by the wormeries and the fact that worms have 3 more  hearts than Doctor Who!

I have had wormeries for some years, and have previously owned a couple of different types. I have also made my own with some degree of success. However, after buying this product, I am happy that I have now got the ultimate wormery! :)
It is clearly apparent to me, that the manufacturer of this product understands worms & composting without comparison. The product is superbly designed, and makes efficient use of space, whilst combining its practicality within a stylish design that is reminiscent of a beehive in appearance. The V-shaped sump insert is an intelligent innovation that directs even the smallest amount of liquid to the tap. The secure way that each section fits together means that it all functions with great practicality, yet at the same time deters the invitation to unwanted insects from joining the mixture. The grid holes between each tray to the next are at an optimum size, which is clearly not by accident.
The recycled plastic construction is UV resistant, which means it should last for a long time. It is of robust quality, and I am delighted with my purchase. I would suggest that it is false economy to buy a slightly cheaper imported wormery. The superior design & manufacturing quality of this product mean that by buying a quality British product, you are saving money in the long run! The delivery speed & packaging of this product are exemplary, combined with the comprehensive instructional booklet for new worm-keepers! Top marks!

5 stars Fabulous wormery at a great price - so good I bought 2
This is my second wormery that has been delivered from Wormcity and again it got to me within supersonic time.
It was ordered at 2.30pm Tuesday and parcelforce delivered it at 9.15 wednesday morning. Ordered and delivered within 24 hours, amazing service!!

The first wormery was bought for me, for my birthday and as my daughter loved it so much I decided to buy her one as a house warming present (or should that be house worming present !!)
I looked around and found and bought a cheaper stacking wormery from a different company and assumed that all wormeries were the same, as they were very similar in looks.
How wrong I was. The other wormery was tiny, the composting trays were about half the depth of the wormcity ones. So I returned it and bought this model.
A lesson learnt, cheaper = lots smaller and hardly any worms.
This wormery is now set up in my daughters new home, and the worms are being fed like mine little and often.
Apparently its very easy to overfeed worms, as it does take a while for the wormery to get established.

Looking forward to eventually feeding our worms lots more - and hopefully make some really excellent compost.
Great product, Great Service, other wormeries pale in comparison against this one.

5 stars Very Happy Customer AND Worms
Having used one of the grey wheely bin type wormeries for a few years I became fed up with the process of emptying the whole bin to obtain the compost. I therefore decided to purchase a replacement stacker type of wormery from Wormcity Amazon Marketplace. Service and delivery was excellent and very fast.The product looks good and works extremely well. The worms are very productive in this one and obtaining the compost is a doddle as the worms really do move up to the next box when finished leaving you a nice tray of compost. Even the worms seem to be smiling! :-)

A Few Common Questions Answered

Many articles have been written about worms and wormeries, which has led to customer confusion, not knowing who or what to believe.
As we have been selling and developing wormeries since 1994, we like to think that we know a little bit more than others who just import them to sell. Questions like ....

1) Does the size of my wormery matter ?
Yes - If you buy a wormery that is advertised to be big enough for a normal family - you want it to be just that - big enough. There is no point buying a wormery that just 'can't cope' with a normal amount of waste

  • Surface area is very important - this allows you to add more food, in a thinner layer.
    Having food spread thinly over the top allows it to compost down faster, and keeps your worms happy and therefore creates a more productive wormery.
  • Depth - If you are told that depth doesn't matter then you are being told wrong.
    its a very important factor. A dustbin is too deep, whereas a very shallow tray - is just too ... shallow - it has to hold food, and allow the worms to live in it safely and comfortably.
    If you put too much food into a shallow tray and the worms do not like it they have nowhere else to go, to escape it, because they are surrounded by the food. so they will leave the wormery.
    If however the tray is slightly deeper, the worms can burrow down and get away from anything not to their liking.
    This same reasoning works with temperature extremes as well, in both hot and freezing temperatures the worms can survive by burrowing into the compost.
    Our Wormcity trays are 43cms square and 17cms deep. From our comprehensive research this is the perfect size / depth ratio for your worms.

2) Should worms be sent with a wormery ?
!! Coir takes approximately 30 minutes (not overnight) to expand from looking like a house brick to fluffy coir fibre. Stick it in a bucket and watch it expand - then simply crumble up any remaining lumps with your fingers and squeeze the excess water out.
Worms love coir, its the perfect bedding for them. PH Neutral and salt free the worms quickly snuggle down into it.
Our worms can also be left in their breathable bag for upto 2 weeks, so if you didn't want to set the wormery up straight away - you don't have to. simply open the box, and keep in a dark, cool spot and they will be fine.

3) What are moisture mats ?
You might notice that other sellers often sell a moisture mats with their wormeries,
This mat is usually made from woven hemp or coir (coconut husk). Worms in their natural habitat like to live under something dark. We know from experience that covering the worms and food with something - deters flies and and makes the worms work actively underneath.
So why do we not sell / supply moisture mats ? the answer is simply because its a gimmick. Newspaper, cardboard, an old jumper, a piece of carpet, all work brilliantly as moisture mats. Moisture mats will be eaten by the worms within a few weeks therefore as the whole point of a wormery is to reduce your waste, it makes sense to use items that can be composted from your household. Save your money and use old newspapers or cardboard, works as well - and is free!

4) What is worm food ?
The wormfood that we send with our wormery is a mixture of ground cereals. You will however notice that we send only a small bag (250g) with our wormeries. Why ? the reason is the same as above. You want to feed your worms household waste - not worm food
. Worms are not given 'worm food' in the wild - they will be totally happy with your leftover cabbage !!

5) What is Lime ?
Lime or Calcified Seaweed is a powder that you can add to your wormery to reduce the acidity (ph).
We do not sell lime simply because unless you know that you have an acidic wormery, adding too much can change the ph levels drastically.
A wormery is a little ecosystem, if you throw in a few handfuls of lime every time you think its acidic, you could potentially upset the delicate balance, which could result in unhappy worms.
Instead of buying lime - we recommend that you use crushed egg shells which is the same as lime as its made from calcium oxide but releases the calcium slowly into the wormery.
If you have egg shells simply dry them out by cooking them in the  oven (when you are cooking something else) or leave them out to dry - then simply grind them into a  fine powder - or bash them with a rolling pin (!).
This can be sprinkled into your wormery. Not only do eggshells help with any acidic problems but they are also an essential form of grit, this helps the worm digest the food better (they do this by grinding the food against the grit in their stomachs.)

NB Composting worms are actually very tolerant of acidic conditions – some worms have a pH tolerance range of between 5 and 9

6) Do we supply Worm Vouchers ?
Yes !!
send us an email straight after ordering, and we will make sure that we put one in instead of the

7) Why do other companies choose to import wormeries rather than use British made ones ?
No idea - ask them !

We hope that the above helps, we know that it contradicts what other sellers say, but we really do know what we are talking about. After all we MAKE the Wormcity Wormery !
