When I was refreshing the soil on top of my outdoor pot plants I found these worms, are they harmful to my plants.

They look like the ones commonly called 'pot worms'. They are not harmful to your plants, but it is usually a sign that the compost is a bit wet and possibly too acid. Try sprinkling some crushed egg shells on the surface, if they bother you.

Oh owdboggy that's a relief to hear. No, they don't bother me at all, my worry was my plants.
Thanks so much for replying.
