Earth Worm Lumbricus terrestris
The world is full of worms and most of them do not live in gardens but in the seas or on the coast. In Holland there are some 50 species of worms that all live underground. There is only one species that pops up onto the surface regularly and that is the well-known Earth Worm. This reddish animal is extremely important as the best recycler Mother Nature has invented. It eats all kinds of dead plants and the droppings it produces are rich pure humus which is so important for vegetation in our gardens.
