Our Manure is a very beneficial product to include into your garden or allotment at various times of the year. One bag of our manure is enough to cover an area one meter square and we will give you advice and instructions on how to apply our manure to your garden or allotment. Horse manure can give new plants a jump start while providing essential nutrients for continual growth. Manure contains very important nutrients that all plants and vegetables will thrive on and offers lots of soil improvement advantages. Apart from supplying a wealth of nutrients to your plants, manure will condition your soil and result in a finer and easier soil to work, it helps build the organic matter content, increases microbial activity, and improves drainage in heavy soils and moisture retention in sandy soils which ultimately results in the healthier growth of plants. Manure helps to prevent soil and wind erosion by binding sandy soil particles together and also prevents caking, cracking, and water run-off that occurs when clay soil dries out.
Manure consists of three basic elements critical to plant health: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Nitrogen allows plants to produce the proteins needed to build living tissue for green stems, strong roots, and lots of leaves. Phosphorus helps move energy throughout the plant, especially important in maturing plants. Potassium aids plants in adapting sugars needed in growth and is especially helpful in root crops. Together, these three elements form that magic formula, N-P-K, the backbone of all fertilizers, man-made or organic. Manure also contains large amounts of humus, a wonderful soil amendment. Humus is simply the bulky, fibrous material that comes from plant fibres and animal remains and is valuable in several ways: it gives better tilth to clay soils; supplies food for soil flora and fauna; preserves moisture during dry spells, while ensuring good drainage during wet times; and it is a storehouse for nitrogen in the soil. In short, humus acts like a reservoir, allowing nutrients to work so contact us today to order your manure! Just remember to wear gloves and wash your hands after use!
