Decomposition of Racehorse Poo

It's great stuff, I'm glad it's not just me that uses it as it comes. I get some funny looks and warnings sometimes.

Nice one Man of Kent

I put it straight on rough bits of garden, shreddings on top and plant through it. Not babies or delicate fussy plants but shrubs and tough perennials are OK and bulbs come through fine. I think it's the ammonia in the urine of stable manure that causes problems, droppings don't seem to. Mine's not such high quality. Unspecified breed of pony

Is this a weeping willow like you see by the river or one of those small ones with the wider leaves and white pussies?

If it's just droppings, poo, sh.., call it what you will, it will take far less time to break down than straw or woodshavings. If your compost heap has just droppins you'll have a bit of a slimy mess,

I'll have some more tries Dove, can't give up though I don't need another bay, the one I've got is plenty. Perhaps I'll post one to flowersforbees and she can try and get it established. Assuming it's made some more, I haven't looked lately.

Propagation gets to be a bit of an obsession after a while, but I can usually find takers for what grows.

Mine makes suckers but I can't seem to get them established when I dig them up. I shall have to have another try. Do you think spring wouyd be the best time?

What the heck - my purse isn't big enough - but one can dream

Plant fairs, open gardens and packets of seeds supplied me with most of my garden. Patience was required. Some of the shrubs took a year or ten to make much impact from seed. Very satisfying.
