You're absolutely right. That's what I meant by 'seed' worms. I could have been clearer, sorry and thanks.
send me a PM and I'll make arrangements to get you some worms. I was checking out your posts in this forum to try and a sense of what your needs might be. I came across your 'Has Anyone Used Forest Dirt in their Gardens?' post.
While I agree with everything everybody said (probably illegal, could harm the forest, yet excellent 'dirt', probably best composted a bit before use), I would say that if you took a bucket out there and dug around a bit, you'd probably find all the worms you could want.
I would only caution, all things in moderation. Take a few worms here, a few worms there. Don't wipe out any one area's population. If you happened to grab a scoop or two of dirt here and there, I don't think that would do much harm to the forest (depending on its size and if anyone else is doing the same thing).
But, PM me if you would like and I will get you some worms.
The best way to maintain a thriving worm population is to provide them with the right conditions. Food and water. If your garden is full of good organic material, that should be food enough, but you need to keep adding to it at least once a year. Do you have a compost pile? Or a part of your yard you could pile up your leaves. That would be all you would need.
'No Till' methods of gardening are also advantageous to worms (as well as your back).
Let me know.
