Different types of manure

What are they used for?

Manure is a great addition to the garden as they are usually rich in nutrients and add organic matter to the garden, which helps with aeration and water retention. However, different manures have different qualities and should be used for the right application.

For the best results from your manure, it should always be aged and/or composted. Many manures are too strong in their fresh form, can carry harmful pathogens or even carry unwanted weed and grass seeds. Correctly composting manure can eliminate all of these issues.

During this composting process, some valuable nutrients will be lost so the addition of other soil amendments and nutrients may be needed. Due to manure being a cheap and plentiful source of organic material, it is more often used for soil health rather than plant food.
