YOU ASK; IN THE GARDEN.

Hi Diarmuid I've been to every garden centre to no avail trying to solve a problem in my garden - worm casts. Please can you help? Thank you

Hi Gerry, Worm casts are the result of earthworms depositing their excreta on top of lawns and can be a real nuisance. There aren't pesticides available, which is good as earthworms are beneficial to the soil, but there are products such as Castclear that lower the ph of the soil which can deter earthworms. Otherwise, on dry days, you can just gently brush them off the lawn with a sweeping brush or rake.
