Is sheep manure as good as cow or horse manure? I ask because I can get an abundance of it. Also instead of using old crocks for potting can I place sheep fleece in the bottom of pots? I am digging up a huge plot ready to build up a beautiful garden (I wish)!!!
Sheep manure's usually stronger than cow or horse. Bear that it in mind and it's perfectly good. If the sheep has grazed, there can be more weed seeds, I've found.
I was reading something somewhere - or maybe I even heard it on the radio - to the effect that you don't need crocks with modern potting mixes. I use them anyway. I'd prefer them to fleece only because I think they would drain better.

Sheep manure is top stuff. Higher in potash than cow or horse and makes v.good liquid fertiliser too.
Many thanks for the info. I'm a novice gardener and I get a little confused about how to achieve the soil Monty gets in his garden.
