We sell garden earthworms too - if you ask us VERY NICELY!! I dig them from our own garden, believe it or not - the best wormery in the world!
We actually sell red wigglers too and we supply Woolworths with wormfarms (will have to get our wormies listed here soon....) and post ANYWHERE (to far areas dispatch on Mondays via SAPO - it works.....)
Wormy Regards

did you get any feedback?

I am looking for the large "African Grey" for use in the Hermanus area. I've been looking for them all around the Western Cape and haven't able to find anything. They subsist on mulch only (no digging except for harvest) and they're still the best garden earthworms around.

Hi, I am looking for Red Wiggler worms in Rustenburg/ Brits area

Tony Finch on 03/11/2013

Can supply worms to anyone close enough to the West Rand. The African variety needs us to turn the compost which is both labour intensive and time consuming. My stock of Wrigglers also needs to be built up again. I usually supply already established fully stocked units.
