Can anyone advise me whether a new garden that has soil with few worms in it will acquire a worm population naturally? The earth obviously got quite compacted by builder's machinery when our house was being built a year ago.

They will come back eventually Sive, once the compaction is relieved. Here is a link to an old thread on that very subject http://www.gardenplansireland.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=301

If you are looking for wormery stock you should be able to pick some up here..... Wormery stock

Thanks for the link, it was good to read of other people's experiences. I am already adding compost to all the beds to increase organic material. I have some isolated beds....ie those against the house, and I suspect I will have to help nature a little there! Preferably when no one is looking or they'll think I'm mad!
