I'm bumping this back up.

What should I do with 1000 litres of horse manure?

As your'e digging out the clay line the bottom of hole with a thick layer of the fresher stuff, then you can add back some of the clay to cover it. Then add the older stuff on top. By next year you should have some decent digable soil. The wood shavings can go in as well, it'll all rot down quite quickly and the worms will have a field day.

Lily bulbs in pots

You can do either David. I generally break a few bulblets off and stick them in gritty compost for a few years and they eventually make new decent sized bulbs. If you leave them on you do get thin growth and no flowers on developing bulbs so I maximise the display by removing the bulblets.

I find it better to bag them personally, wire bins do take longer to rot down in my experience.

Best off using black plastic sheeting not tarps. Available online or at hardware stores.
