Despatched direct from the manufacturers please allow 5-10 days for delivery.
The Classic Subpod is the 3 in 1 compost system, worm farm and garden seat all rolled into one! Converting your organic waste into a nutrient rich compost with the Subpod is as simple as opening a lid, stirring in your scraps and taking a seat. It’s smell free, mess free, pest-free and stress-free.

Ideal for households of up to eight people, this efficient compost system lets you convert up to 20kg of kitchen and garden waste into compost each week. Composting with the Subpod is really quick and easy – basic instructions are even on the underside of the lid to show you exactly what to do!

One of the unique features of this type of composting system is that it is an in-ground worm farm, with 90% of the unit being below the soil level in your garden. The benefits to being underground includes that you can actively compost all year around as the soil will insulate the compost and protect the composting worms from harsh weather. Also, the holes on all sides of the Subpod allow the worms that live inside to come and go freely, helping to nourish the soil. 

Ideal for family households – this Classic Subpod can compost up to 20kg of food waste a week, making it the perfect size for households of up to 8 people. You can add a wide range of waste to the Subpod including food scraps, vegetables and fruit, bread, eggshells, grains, coffee grounds, tea bags, dry leaves, grass clippings, shredded newspaper, paper towels, toilet rolls, uncoated cardboard etc. There is also another selection of waste which you can add, but should be more cautious with, this includes meats, bines, fish, seafood, oils, dairy, cheese, chilli, spicy foods, onion, garlic, citrus fruits etc. All this is explained in the detailed instruction manual included with the Subpod.

Made from recyclable polypropylene – this durable plastic is capable of withstanding a wide range of temperatures so is ideal for the Subpod. The manufacturers would expect this Subpod to have a lifespan of 10-15 years. The strength of the Subpod can be easily seen as, when planted in a raised bed, you could sit on the top of the Subpod – it has been weight tested up to 200kgs.

Two worm blankets – approx. 8mm thick, this 100% natural jute felt helps to insulate your Subpod keeping your worms comfortable in all types of weather. Simply soak in water, ring out and then fit on top of your compost within the Subpod.

Composting Worms – you will need approx. 1kg (between 1,000 to 2,000) composting worms for this Subpod to operate.  We offer the Subpod with or without worms – so if you are upgrading to a Supbod from a previous wormery then you might have your composting worms to transfer. If not choose the option to include worms. The composting worms we will supply will be a mixture of species but will include mainly reds and dendras. These species have excellent composting abilities and will work well in the Subpod.
