Heavy Horse Manure and Fine Composted Horse Manure are good for conditioning a heavy clay soil, particularly when used in conjunction with grit or sand. Best application rate is 50mm (2") manure to 25mm (1") grit or sand (approx. 1 bag of each to 1 square meter). For best results, the grit or sand should be dug into the ground and then the manure added and forked in. Alternatively see superior soil conditioner below.


Mushroom Compost

Mushroom compost is a mix of manure and peat used to grow a crop of mushrooms and then sterilised. It is well composted and ideal for mulching herbacaceous borders or digging in vegetable plots. It can be slightly alkaline and is therefore not recommended for ericaceous plants e.g. Rhodedendrons, Azaleas, Ericas etc.
