|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

|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.

| 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.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|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!|
