You hear so much as to what type of feed should i apply to my garden?should i use a liquid or a manure or even green compost.It just gets so confusing But i am sure that you all have your own version to share with us,even if it's a, i burried the mother in law under that bush and look how its grown version.However lets us all know.

Hi Dave, I use chicken manure twice a year generally, horse muck on roses and rhubarb (its better with custard though )   Occasionally liquid such as Miracle Gro when I can be bothered!

Home made compost from kitchen and garden waste mostly. Topped up in the early spring by a trailer load of JPR Gold soil conditioner from a local farm. Gold by name and gold by nature but also gold by price, unfortunately.

Ok waterbutts i'll be your guinea pig......What is JPR.

Paula tut tut tut shame on you girl thats a terrible joke. go to the dog barking thread if you want a joke.

apart from the difference of one's a chicken and ones a horse, what is the dirrerence in the formula.

JPR Farm Direct is the name of a local farm's offshoot company. Everyone in farming has to think of ways of diversifying these days and they sell their muck in different forms. JPR Gold is muck plus mystery ingredients which results in a lovely, friable soil conditioner that can be sprinkled onto the soil. It looks a bit like leafmould. They deliver a trailer load and then it's two hours of barrowing to spread it around.

I'm not apologising for my bad joke - what's the dog barking thread??? 

The chicken manure is dried/pelleted and easy to scatter around, the farmyard/horse manure is bagged as it is and stinks...... but the plants love it

i think maybe if you went out and spat on your garden cas iam sure you've got plenty,

then you wont need the manure that spills from your mouth as for your Mother in Law

i bet she would want too get as far as way from you

That's nice Marty Mower and for your info, I don't have a Mother In Law!

MartyMower who are you talking to and why so rude?!  Surely whatever grievance you have does NOT need to be aired in public like this.

Forgotten what I was going to put now Diddy. Was not expecting to read that!

why is horse manure prefered to the use of cow manure?

11/09/2013 at 20:53

Not sure actually, I buy it as 'farmyard manure' not sure what animal it's from, could be horse or cow I suppose?

11/09/2013 at 21:00

Horse manure is produced in "doddle" shapes, usually well hidden in lots of bedding material,  whereas cow muck is produced in "pats" , which are wetter and claggier and just on their own, therefore much heavier and more difficult to spread around.

What a subject to be dealing with as I eat my dinner.

It all looks the same 'flat packed' Waterbutts!
