    I purchased some mixed dendro and tigersome worms for my compost heap a couple of moths ago. They came more quickly than I expected, were well packaged and looked to be lovely healthy, lively worms. I popped them straight into the bottom of the compost heap and they seem to be doing their job as the level of material waiting to decompose has already dropped qute considerably. Very pleased and would certainly use this company again.

    Fantastic service all round.

    Excellent service my pack arrived quickly, I decided to build a new wormery as mine was getting a bit worse for wear I had previously bought from here. I bought my supplies from here again and have everything set up and my worms are now in a new home. I think the old wormery worms will be retired to the borders with the compost.

    Wow. <24hrs from order. Postie was impressed. We are impressed. Clearly the wor-rms are equally impressed by the way they dived in like dophins.

    I only purchased 100g of worms as I just needed them for axolotl food. As my axie was a baby, I was in no rush and knew I had time to establish a small wormery for food purposes. Using a plastic shoe box and with fingers crossed, we started our wormery. I needn’t have worried as much as I did as within a few days and only one stray, the worms settled happily in their new home. 3 months later we also have a thriving worm colony with a lifetime supply of food for Geoff! Geoff loves these worms and is a happy, healthy axolotl! I’m almost sad that it worked so well as the service & quality of worms has been amazing. I’d love to do business with you guys everyday if I could! I’ve recommended you to all the other axie parents I know. Thank you!

  10. DavidB (verified owner)

    The worms arrived promptly and in excellent condition, they are now having a grand time in my compost bin. Thanks very much

    Bought 3 lots. 1st dendro’s & tigers. Axolotls & Weather Loach ate both. 2nd lobs, tigers & dendro’s again all eaten.
    Read a blog and only dendro’s are recommended for Axolotls & although mine have eaten them all the water has gone cloudy.
    So 3rd order, wormery kit, 500g dendro’s & a read of the very helpful blogs.
    Previous worms have been fresh, fat & very active. We actually had lots of eggs laid by last lot in bait tubs used to store them.
    Extremely happy, highly recommend after previous suppliers for 1 year their dendro’s & storage, feeding advice were not very good in comparison to Yorkshire Worms. *****

    Found Yorkshire worms after having some quality issues with other suppliers; very pleased as they arrived next working day, in good quality soil which didn’t smell musty (so you know they’ve been freshly packed up) Good chunky size, look healthy and no dead worms. Used as live food for Axolotls who enjoyed them!

  13. redriver.1 (verified owner)

    Very good healthy worms and next day delivery,

  14. Kate (verified owner)

    worms in good condition and well packaged but not in the quantity expected..

  19. CS (verified owner)

    Quick delivery service and healthy looking worms well packaged. Used a combination of Tigers and Dendros to start a composter. Great fun in the first couple of days with them stretching their “legs” trying to escape and explore their surroundings! Kept a light on their box in the shed for about 14 days, they have now settled down well. Will definitely recommend Yorkshire worms!

  20. J Aggett (verified owner)

    Very very very happy with my purchase will be using Yorkshire Worms again. And i will certainly recommend you to friends and family.

  37. pam williams (verified owner)

    fast, friendly service and great worms – as always 🙂

  38. AM (verified owner)

    Prompt delivery. My second time buying. One suggestion I have is to put some guidance on the site for how many worms are needed for a compost bin by volume. I thought when they arrived that I should have ordered more.

  39. Steve Ridd (verified owner)

    Bought to start off for fishing bait and to start off my own breedery in the garden compost heap… all good healthy worms on delivery which was very quick.

    Excellent bait – and breeding well – and now winter is here I have covered the compost heap with a deep layer of grass cuttings as both insulation and for worm fodder, For bait over the winter I’ve put a supply of worms in to a 3′ x 2′ plastic trunk in the greenhouse with dampened shredded newspaper as keeping medium and on to which i dump the kitchen waste as feed and all is extremely well with that too.

  40. Elaine St John Mosse

    On the advice of a very helpful chap at Yorkshire Worms, I bought some of these to add to our cat’s latrine at the bottom of the garden (they love poo apparently). They arrived quickly and in good condition. They seem to be enjoying their new home and certainly do their job!

  41. Peter Hayton (verified owner)

    As always, fast delivery and secure packaging from Yorkshire Worms (our postman isn’t so keen though!).
    The worms are live food for our Axolotyls (AKA Mexican Walking Fish) and we have not had any problems with delivery or quality of the worms.
    The worms are not to my taste but the Axolotyls do swim to the surface to take worms from my fingers or tweezers if my wife is feeding them, so we do presume that the Axolotyls do enjoy them.
    I highly recommend Yorkshire Worms for quality, service and speed of delivery.
