Hi Everyone,

Quick Question. Can I add worms from my garden soil to my closed raised bed? If yes, should i dig up and place them at the bottom or just put them a few inches below the soil? my Raised bed is covered so no worries from birds.

Thanks in advance Smiling

moving them from one part of garden to another? seems fine. Assuming the raised bed is still connected to the ground, not elevated.
If you add organic matter to the raised bed, the worms will find it on their own. And if they don't like the raised bed they will leave.

I agree worms need food.water.air.
When ground gets to hot or dry they go down to cooler ground. Coverings over beds shouldn't generate heat
Or suffocate them.

I have worms in my raised beds in my greenhouse. They've been in there over a year now, and every time I disturb the media I see them. They look happy and my plants are all growing almost too well!
