compost from manure
I have a huge pile of horse manure and straw available to me. I have used some of this mix (it is a year old) as basic compost for potting up and potting on plants. So far it has been successful and the plants seem to be quite happy. Does anyone else do this and is there anything I shouldn't plant in it, or any other things I need to be careful of if using it?
I was also wondering if it would be ok to use it to top dress ericaceous plants such as my blueberries, rhododendrons and oriental Lillies with this manure mix?
