Setting up your Tui Worm Tower

Recycle your organic kitchen waste straight into the garden with the new Tui Worm Tower. Simply top up the Tower with your organic waste for the worms to process into rich nutrients to feed your plants.

Simple to assemble and easy to use, the Tui Worm Tower can hold up to 1,000 worms! We've put together a guide to setting up in your garden.

  • Do you sell tiger worms otherwise the only way to obtain them in Auckland is by buying a conventional worm farm...

    • Hi Jo, thanks for getting in touch. Tui doesn't sell worms, however they are available online at WormsRUs and at some Bunnings stores - suggest phoning the store to check they have some in stock first.
