No just put the worm in the bag of compost with his mates!! I'm sure he's missed them grin

That's how compost is made. Worms poo it out. HTH.

Which brand? I must go out and buy some! Put them in your compost bin, or just on the flower beds outside. Worms are Good.

worms are good.
is it that you dont like them indoors?
use the compost outside and get new compost for your indoor plants

Compost is full of all sorts of organisms and beasties. Thats how it is made. Do you think the manufacturers can round them all up when bagging it up just in case they end up in someone's indoor pots?

Commercial compost is 'cooked' at very high temperatures and is made by micro organisms, not worms. It's definitely not normal to find them in a bag of shop bought compost and I would have been upset too. No idea how they got there though.

They may have made their way in during storage at the garden centre/ shop or where they were bagged. Commercially produced compost, as goddess has said, relies on high temperatures and shouldn't contain worms. Try a different brand of compost designed for indoor use and you should be fine.
