    Earthworms

    I have got my children (that I teach) really interested in worms and how they help the environment. I then made a wormery with them in class and we went to the garden to dig for worms. I tried every trick I know, pouring warm soapy water, stamping, digging etc. (Ive done this many times in the UK) but no luck.
    In desperation I then went to the fish market on my lunch break but could only find maggots not worms.
    So I kept the wormery in class and told the children I would try my best to find worms. Anybody any ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    I was once told by a fishing enthusiast friend that the best time to collect worms is a couple of hours before dawn because that's when they are most active.

    Really depends on how dedicated you are to finding the little buggers!

    Or wait until the heavier rains come. We have them all over at our complex after a heavy rain. I say "all over" but not nearly what you would see in the US. Maybe there aren't many worms here? Something to do with the subtropics?
    Have you tried asking Kadoorie Farms about it?
