Horse Manure in a Vegan Garden

Posted: 30/09/2012 at 15:40

As a horse is a vegetarian or even vegan only consuming grass and other grains/cereals and produces the manure as a natural product and that product is then broken down in the soil by other bacteria/organisms which are not so selective about what they eat...I'm wondering where the problem lies? I would be much more concerned with a fox or cat defecating on my vege plot than the applying of a well sourced rotted down manure from a vegan/vegetarian animal feeding the soil.

Can you post a picture of the flower when it opens and an up close one of the upper surface of a  leaf as it will make it easier to give a good id?

I think it is just a change in temperature and weather comnditions. How long ago were the plants put in?

The only reason I can think of is the weather we've had. It has upset a lot of plants this year. There have been quite a few threads about different plants/trees not fruiting this year - such a shame.Next year ....hopefully!

Green is the colour of the sparkling corn when we rise, when we rise - he missed out a bit in that clip. Boy, does it take me back.....

You can move them now or in the spring. If you move them now they will have a good chance to settle in while the soil is still warm. Youu can cut them back a bit now and then hard back in the spring.
