Hi Bob Harper, perhaps you can help me. I am currently digging a new flower bed and the soil is very hard compacted clay . I have access to a horse manure heap but I have used most of the really rotted black stuff and am left with the straw/manure mix.
Do you think putting that on would help break up the consistancy of the soil or is it too fresh (its about 3 months old) I could pick up dung from the field as an option. ?
