Can anyone tell me if they heard on the J Vine radio 2 show that if sheeps droppings are put in a sack and left in water butt this would be the best plant feed.Also would it be added to a watering can filled with water(50/50 mix). Or would it be just taking the contents straight from the water butt.

Thanks for your time. 

I've done this recently. I think it needs a stir from time to time, I put the poo in a net kindling sack and stupidly tied the neck of the bag with a length of string which I then threaded through a hole in the lid of the butt and attached to a stick. I thought this would let me agitate the sack of poo as I went by...but of course the string rotted and broke! And with the recent non stop monsoon the butt has been overflowing, so the mix is running clear. But as I live on the edge of Dartmoor, gathering fresh sheep poo is not really a problem, so I'm going to get another load, drop it in and tie it a bit more securely!
