why are there no worms in my garden? have introduced new garden soil aged horse manure & fertilizers.

the soil is grey/sandy and repels water despite adding water holding materials. All my kitchen scraps, tops of carrots,beetroot etc get chopped and buried. Despite all this i still get decent crop of vegies. Thanks

Hi Rene, 

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Sounds like you are doing all the right thing, but rich soil doesn't get built in one day, if the soil is new, you may try purchase some live worms from the local hardware store to add to the soil and speed up the colony. 

Also, make sure the area is not too dry as worms thrive in moist but not wet soil.
