Recycle your kitchen scraps straight into the garden with the Tui Worm Tower. The perfect addition to any garden bed, this in-ground composting system creates healthy soil as worms feed on the organic matter. Top up the Tui Worm Tower with kitchen scraps for the worms to process into rich nutrients to naturally feed your garden.

The Tui Worm Tower is simple to assemble, easy to use and can hold up to 1,000 worms – a gardener’s best friend!

Benefits

  • In-ground food waste recycling system with compost worm access holes.
  • Easy to assemble and install.
  • Suitable for flower and vegetable gardens.

Directions for use

  1. Choose a position for your Tui Worm Tower, preferably in the middle of your garden bed.
  2. Bury the Tui Worm Tower into the soil leaving the top flared section exposed.
  3. In the base of the Tui Worm Tower, place a bedding of pre-moistened strips of newspaper, leaf matter, straw and compost.
  4. Place your worms onto the bedding and they will travel back and forth through the feeding holes, to deliver nutrients directly to the roots.

For your Tui Worm Tower, you will get the best output from Tiger worms. These worms will produce high quality and quantities of nutrients for your garden. You can buy them from hardware stores, garden centers or off the internet.

To feed your worms, put in most of your fruit and vegetable waste, except citrus or onions. Don’t put in salad dressing or vinegar, but do throw in tea bags, coffee grounds and crushed egg shells. Even hair will do the job.

    I have 3 worm towers in my garden and have also had issues with the lid breaking so I want to know where I can purchase replacement lids?---TUI TEAM REPLY: Hi Blanche, thanks for getting in touch with your feedback. We're sorry to hear that you've had trouble with your Tui Worm Tower lids breaking. We can confirm the manufacturing issue with the handles has been fixed so the handles don't break easily.

    Great concept and I have two in my garden. Only problem is the lids are hard to get off and the handle breaks easily. We had to fix them so they didn't break again.---TUI TEAM REPLY: Hi Mo, thank you for your feedback. We can confirm the manufacturing issue with the handles has been fixed so the handles don't break easily. We hope you enjoy using this product in your garden. Kind regards, Tui Team.
