Hello - I have some horse manure (kindly donated from Jobi_wan!) and would like to use it in my veg-patch. All the books say to use 'well-rotted' manure. How long would I have to leave it to be 'well-rotted'?
Also - how do I rot it? Can I leave it in bags? Or is it best on the comnpost heap? Or a heap of it's own?
Start collecting now, stick it in a heap and it should be just right for the pre-winter dig in. It will also get a good selection of worms in it by then to help break up the soil over the colder months
