Unfortunately we are currently out of live mealworms and mini mealworms due to a national shortage. We are expecting this to last for at least another two weeks but as soon as they are in stock we will have them back online here, so keep checking back on the web for any updates. We do have stock of dried mealworms and live waxworms which your birds will both enjoy.

Why is a compost heap so good for my wildlife garden?

By Rob 8 months ago

We all know the benefits of a compost heap in terms of enriching the soil, adding organic matter and recycling our green waste but they have the added benefit of being brilliant for your wildlife garden. Compost heaps are rich, moist, warm dark and rather cosy for many garden creatures.

Composting in an Apartment

With more and more people in the UK house sharing or living in an apartment, the space outside is increasingly scarce but that shouldn’t stop us from growing or indeed composting.

Top five tips for a greener workplace

By Heather 11 years ago


Here are my top five tips for reducing the quantity of waste that would otherwise find its way into a landfill site. Many people are environmentally aware at home, but somehow it slips by the wayside at work.


  1. Shred all paper and either re-use as pet bedding or add to a composter or wormery. At Wiggly Wigglers we use all our shredded paper as packing material in our parcels and actively encourage customers to compost it. If you have confidential waste, consider using a company like Enviroshred who feed pulped paper waste to worms and the resulting compost can be used in the garden.

  2. Buy your milk from your local milkman. Not only does your milk have less food miles, but the average milk bottle can be refilled up to twenty times before it wears out, saving lots of unnecessary waste.

  3. Instead of throwing all those bits of lunch waste, apples cores and banana skins etc into the bin, put them into a wormery or bokashi bucket. A bokashi bucket will even deal with those leftover bits of meat/fish sandwich, sausage rolls etc. Great garden compost and a liquid feed for free for any green fingered employee prepared to take it home.

  4. Keep recycling bins close at hand for items such as plastic, glass and cans

  5. Try to use environmentally friendly products, such as Ecover for your hand wash, washing up liquid/dishwasher tablets and recycled hand towels.
Here is an earlier post that we did about Bokashi and also have a look at Mark Eccleston's blog The Green Fingered Photographer to read about his Bokashi experiences.
