Horse manure is a good source of nutrients and a popular addition to many home gardens. Composting horse manure can help your compost pile become super charged.
Fresh manure should not be used on plants to prevent the possibility of burning their roots. However, well-aged manure, or that which has been allowed to dry over winter, can be worked into the soil without the worry of burning. While it may be more nutritional, horse manure may also contain more weed seeds. For this reason, it is usually better to use composted horse manure in the garden. The heat produced from composting can effectively kill most of these seeds as well as any harmful bacteria that may be present. Composted horse manure can also be used in the garden any time of the year. Simply toss it over the garden area and work it into the soil.
Our product has been well-rotted for over a year, and will give any garden a healthy balance of nutrients. It is excellent for improving and feeding all soil types and looks beautiful when used as an effective all-round garden mulch.
ps: Decomposition of Organic matter during composting is largely the result of Aerobic Microbiological activity. Micro-Organisms break down organic matter and produce carbon dioxide, water, heat and humus, the stable and valuable organic end product for a healthier plant and a healthier crop of vegetables and flowers.
