They are out of Red Worms (used for composting) and they are not going to be getting any more. That would be because the supplier has decided to STOP SELLING them to the shops.
AND, everyone in the county buys from the same wholesaler.
So I think I am going to have to make a small investment in about 200 worms, and a larger container and start growing worms, worm compost and compost tea. I will have a ready market (albeit wholesale) with the bait & tackle guys, plus all the gardening people.
