Infertile Soil

I created a flower bed from an area that was lawn.  I stupidly failed to put any organic matter in and just planted.  Sunsequently I put a compose mulch on but things growing very slowly and the soil seems quite poor quality.

Any suggestions.

Also on raised veg beds I put horse manure on and nothing has germinated - could this be because too fresh..  Could I sew more lettuces etc now?

    Thank you - that is very helpful.  I am an impatient novice and often a case of more haste less speed with gardening...
