Organic Manure FAQs
What is organic manure?
Farmyard manure is organic matter that is used as a fertiliser in gardening and agriculture, with the majority of manure consisting of animal faeces such as horse, cow, chicken and bedding straw.
Is well rotted horse manure good for gardens?
Yes, horse slurry is great for gardens. Organic horse manure compost acts as a brilliant natural fertiliser, soil conditioner, soil improver and source of nitrogen, which are all essential for growing plants and keeping your garden in the best condition possible.
Can I put composted horse manure straight on flower beds?
Fresh manure may sound like the best option to many gardeners and landscapers, but in reality, it isn’t – plants are at risk from E.coli, salmonella and other harmful bacteria when fresh manure is applied. (Let the manure dry and age in order to achieve the best results for your garden).
Can I mix organic manure with other soil amendments or fertilisers?
Absolutely, you can mix organic manure with other soil amendments or fertilisers. Combining organic manure with other materials can create a balanced blend that enriches your soil’s nutrient content and improves its overall structure.
Is organic compost the same as organic manure?
Organic compost is a result of a breakdown of organic materials, creating a nutrient-rich soil conditioner that promotes healthy plant growth and soil structure. On the other hand, organic manure involves animal waste and other decomposed elements, providing not only vital nutrients but also enriching the soil with a beneficial microbial activity that nurtures plant vitality.
Can organic manure be used for both indoor and outdoor plants?
Absolutely, organic manure is versatile and suitable for both indoor and outdoor plants. Its nutrient content helps plants thrive, whether you’re nurturing houseplants, container gardens, or landscaping projects in your garden.
How often should I apply organic manure to my plants, and what is the application process?
The frequency of applying organic manure depends on factors like plant type, soil condition, and the specific organic manure used. Generally, applying organic manure once or twice a year, during the growing season is recommended, however keep in mind that some plants don’t like manure.
Gently apply a small amount of the organic manure into the soil around the base of your plants, making sure it doesn’t come into direct contact with the plant stems. Following application, water the area to help nutrients seep into the soil.
How does organic manure benefit plant growth?
Organic manure benefits plant growth by providing essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, which promote strong root growth and overall plant health. It also enhances soil structure, increasing water retention capacity and aiding in better drainage.
The microbial activity present in organic manure supports effective nutrient recycling and maintains a healthy soil ecosystem, which contributes to long-lasting plant well-being.
