The Power of Worm Compost this Spring

Spring has sprung and we hope you’re enjoying being back out in the garden and strategising your activities for the season. If there's one ideal accompaniment to your gardening endeavours, it’s worm compost!

There’s a reason farmers and gardeners are so enthusiastic about the ‘black gold’ compost produced from worm castings. In fact, there are plenty of reasons! It’s great for the soil, it’s an incredibly powerful superfood for plants, and it helps make your garden pest and disease resistant!

What’s not to love? In the article below, you’ll learn more about worm compost, how its made, how you can use it in your garden and what its many benefits are.

Oh… we also tell you the BEST way to create nutrient-rich compost. Have a read of what it is!

A Rooftop Forest in… Central London?

The SE1 postcode in Central London is more often thought of as an urban jungle than an actual jungle. That is all set to change this year, with the old ‘Blackfriars Crown Court’ building set to host it’s very own rooftop jungle.

What a jungle it will be too! The old courthouse (something of a boring concrete monstrosity) is going to be redesigned and reinforced to hold 1300 tonnes of soil on its roof. From this soil will grow a thick forest of over 10,000 plants, including 125 trees!

What we love about ‘Roots in the Sky’, as it’s called, is that there will be public access to anyone wanting to enjoy the peaceful escape in this urban hideaway. Not just that, but Londoners with a love of gardening will have access to sheds, beds to grow plants in and a community seed bank! That’s great community spirit right there.
