Usage Guidelines

Improving clay or light soils
Apply a 5-8cm (2-3") layer on to the soil and work in. Use in spring or autumn.

Established Plants
To reduce moisture loss and suppress weeds around roses, shrubs, beds and borders apply a 5cm (2") layer across the soil surface.

Planting roses, shrubs and trees
Mix one part manure with two parts top soil for the planting hole.

Vegetable Growing
For brassicas, pea or beans, dig a trench and cover the bottom with manure. Fill the trench with a mix of one part farm manure to two parts top soil.

For planting tomatoes, courgettes, etc, fill planting holes with a mix of one part manure to two parts top soil.

Other crops
Apply manure around established fruit trees in spring to improve yields. Do the same round fruit bushes and canes for bigger and better fruit on raspberries, blackcurrants and gooseberries. Pre-dressing flower beds with manure will give better blooms.

New lawns
For better aeration and drainage apply a 2.5-5cm (1-2") layer on to the soil surface and work in before laying turf or sowing seeds.

Advice
Wear gloves and don't use in an enclosed space to avoid breathing in dust. After use, wash hands before eating, drinking or smoking. Not suitable for use with ericaceous (lime hating) plants
