What customers say about their Composta

“This product is brilliant and easy for novice gardeners like me. Plus no more wasting food scraps which I really love.” – Fal

“These are great, we got one for Christmas and it’s easy to use and everything grows so easy in it! Love it! – Jena

“…I thoroughly enjoy it. My worms are very happy and so I find my herbs really grow. I am planning to buy another one everything grows well in them and they are very attractive for balconies or patios for herbs or flowers. Just love mine.” – Margaret

“I have two and my plants are loving it!!! All my friends are jealous…” – Elle

“This will be the third Composta I’ve bought…2 were a gift for my niece and 1 for me. We are both delighted with our Compostas, hers has pride of place on her front veranda growing herbs and mine on my back deck growing herbs, snow peas and baby lettuce. The worms settled in right away and got to task. I’ve had several types of worm farms over the years, this one beats them all. Composta number 3 is a birthday present for my eldest son, he’s an Agriculture teacher and a very busy dad who tries to find the time to grow a few edibles at home with his toddlers – I know the Composta will easily allow him and his children to recycle, grow and enjoy fresh food in a neat and compact way that will suit his busy lifestyle. Thanks for a wonderful Australian product.” – Jenny

“Very sustainable and environmentally friendly. We love having it for all curries and other food…” – Claudia


I already have a worm farm. Can I use some of my composting worms in the Composta?

Yes! Composting worms like red wrigglers are ideal for adding to your Composta. Click here to purchase the Composta container garden and worm farm only. If you are using your own composting worms (NOT earthworms), remember to add some bedding material to the base. e.g. a combination of moistened well-aged grass clippings and old leaves with shredded plain paper or coconut coir if you have some. Worms need bedding as well as food! Add the food scraps on top of the bedding in about the same proportion.

What if my worms arrive before my Composta container garden? How should I care for them?

This may occasionally happen! The worms are delivered via Express Post separately. The Composta is shipped via Help Enterprises (a charity and social enterprise organisation to help disabled young people). However they can sometimes take a few days to do so and we appreciate your patience. In the meantime, keep your worms in a dark cool moist place like an ice cream container with a lid and a few air holes. Or reuse the plastic bag they arrive in as a ‘lid’ over a container and hold in place with a rubber band or similar. Just punch a few holes in the plastic bag ‘lid’ with a skewer for air. Moisten the bedding with water in a spray bottle and give them a small quantity of chopped up food waste or juice pulp. Whatever you have handy so long as it is moist. A couple of tablespoons should be enough to keep them busy for a few days! The worms will be fine and can be moved into their new home when the Composta arrives.

How long will my worms live?

Worms will continually breed as a community as long as there is food and moisture available. They have been known to live for a few months, or even up to 10 years!

Where is it best to place my Composta pot?

The Composta loves a bit of sunshine, unlike your typical worm farm. Choose a position for your Composta that works with the type of plants you have chosen to grow in it. Simply refer to the directions provided with your plants. The surrounding garden will protect your worms from direct heat, cold and large temperature fluctuations. The Composta is a light colour that also helps reflect heat.
