  1. It’s starting to be winter here in Virginia with sub-zero temps. Can the live worms be transplanted into the garden and live in theis weather?

  2. Greetings Gene,
    No they cannot be put into your garden this late and survive. They would have to be established in your garden, in warm weather for at least 2 weeks prior to the cold setting in. Preferrably all summer… Then some would get deep enough to live through spring, but the more important thing would be that your soil would be rich with worm eggs, which would hatch in the spring.
    The other problem is that if your garden is kept clean, like most gardens are kept, then there will not be much food available, and the worms will quickly move out into areas with food (lawns, thatch areas…ect.) Worms are able to eat their weight daily.
    One trick in places with plenty of conifer trees, like Virginia, is to put worms in your garden after you have tilled manure or other organics into it in the spring. This will give them a food source to stay. Then in the fall, after you have harvested your garden and cleaned it up of all roots and growth; Gather all your leaf piles from the yard. Dump fresh worms into your garden and cover them with the piles of leaves, and water. They will act like you have dumped them into a smorgasbord, and will thrive until going dormant over the winter and spring back in mass quantities in the spring. Come spring, your leaves will likely be completely composted, but if there are some leaves left, just till them in… If there is too much leaf matter, simply remove most of the excess first to clean up your garden area, then till.

    Hope this helps.
