Can i also clarify that i want to know which is best poo! or mizuna for instance?

Neither is better and both are good. Green manures tend to be used on vege gardens because you are....arghhh can't think of the word....intensely!   farming the same piece of ground and expecting a lot from it in one season.Most green manures are good nitrogen fixers which your veges need. They are also active unlike manure. They grow unlike manure, attracting insects to your crop. They cover bare ground until you are ready to plant. Act as a weed suppressant. But you couldn't really use them in your herbacious border...would look a little odd and some are not very attractive.

Manure is good for everywhere but can be too strong for your little seedlings growing in your vege patch. Thats why most people apply Autumn/Winter time so it can breakdown a bit before you start planting. There are also health concerns connected with using fresh manure around veges. You are, afterall, applying the waste products of animals and there is no guarantee that there are no worms or bacteria in it that could infect you!

 When used around perennials and shrubs you should always apply so manure  is not touching the stems leaving a little clear circle round the plants. 

Is that as clear as mud or poo Diddy lol

No not joking. It really is good for the garden. We quite happily put horse, cow even pet wee on the compost...mixed with poo!!!! why not human? It is the best thing for nitrogen and great compost accelerator

Weed/Plant ID please

You need to decide for her Diddy. She is new to all this and doesn't know what will grow well which is why she gave description of garden.
