How To Use Horse Manure In Your Garden


Horse manure in garden

One of the main problems that gardeners have is making sure that their soil remains in top condition. One of the ways to do this is to add compost which is rich in nutrients and will aid plant growth.

Horse manure is ideal composting material and can be used as an organic fertilizer to super-charge your garden!

So what makes horse manure an excellent fertilizer?

Horse manure contains organic matter which, when applied to plants in the garden can give them the best start and enable them to grow more quickly and become stronger and healthier too.

Horse manure is Nitrogen-rich though it doesn’t have particularly high quantities of Phosphorus and Potassium, which is why it can work best on non-flowering plants.

For best results, horse manure should be given to nitrogen-hungry plants such as corn, potatoes, garlic, and lettuce and it can also be fantastic for boosting your grass lawn. However steer clear of adding horse manure to flowering and fruiting plants such as tomatoes, and peppers. Or if you do decide to use it mix it with other compost so it doesn’t inhibit the growth of fruit and flowers.

At Bury Hill, however, we supply stable horse manure which will work particularly well on roses and can be used throughout the garden.

Using horse manure in your garden should be done so carefully. If you want to use it as fertilizer it is important to use well-aged, thoroughly dried manure that can be worked into the soil without running the risk of burning the roots of your plants.
