Understanding the different ecological groups of earthworms is key to improving your little patch of our planet for every gardener’s friend.
Earthworms are vital for maintaining healthy soils and provide a host of other benefits to garden habitats. However, few people realise we have 31 different species of earthworm in the British Isles, with differing requirements and providing different benefits. Keiron will provide tips and guidance on how you can improve the earthworm diversity and abundance within your garden, regardless of if you have a small urban garden or extensive grounds.
Keiron Derek Brown is the UK’s national recorder for earthworms, a trustee of the Earthworm Society of Britain and delivers training on earthworm ecology, surveying and identification.
