What You Should Know About Manure

When you are adding fresh manure to your soil, it is best to keep it from coming into direct contact with plant roots. Fresh manure can severely burn plants.

You should try to use aged manure on your soil. Aged manure is in the rotting phase and it contains a ready supply of nutrients. Aged manure is less likely to burn your plants.
