    Me too.

    Welcome to the Forum, Shirley. This is one of the rare occasions when we all agree - it doesn't often happen.

    Welcome Shirley,
    You wonít regret joining, the wealth of knowledge here is amazing!
    Iím with everyone else, I get my manure in Spring time and let it compost until Autumn when I use it to prep the beds for garlic and onions in Spring. Then again in Spring for top dressing.
    Also, I use Donkey Dung. Had great results and it doesnít smell!!!

    I'd bung it in a composter and chuck any other compostables in too and as well as the manure rotting down, you'll increase the amount by adding more stuff to it I'm a bit of an obsessive composter though, if it's compostable it gets composted.

    Burnie, presume you are refering to unknown source manure ?.
