When I first came here Iput in 4 fence posts about4 feet (1.20) apart 
and put wiremesh all round. Then I put all the small stuff, leaves, 
branches, kitchen peelings, and doggie do, in there, and ignore it.  I 
use the resultant compost all round the garden. It is full of 
earthwormsthen.  I have never liked to use it in pots as earthworms are 
in there then too.  I guess from this thread that actually is ok, to 
have earthworms in potted mixes?
