- Now is the time to
add European Nightcrawlers (ENCs) to your compost bin if you live in a warmer
climate. Soon for you guys up north,
voracious appetites, grow fast and make compost faster.
Nightcrawlers are a great all-purpose worm, good for gardens, composting and
Nightcrawlers will grow to over twice the size of red-worms, often reaching
five to six inches or more and as thick as a pencil.
- Fishermen love
them as they tolerate warm, cold and brackish salt water and are very lively.
Grow bigger and
better tasting fruit and vegetables, improve long term soil health.
These are healthy
young worms, mostly medium size, bed run – mixed sizes (not fully grown).
Most are already
breeders and they are prolific breeders!
European Nightcrawlers are capable of growing up to 6 inches
long, just watch yours grow! We
include a starter kit containing samples of Our Worm Food and Limestone
(calcium carbonate). These
photos show an example of the worms you will receive and how their composted
material affects our garden.
