horse manure in plastic bags

Posted: 21/07/2013 at 21:18

I know I've got to keep horse manure (fresh today) for 6+ months  before use.  At the moment it is in black plastic bags. Should I tip it out onto the garden or will it be ok in the sacks?  If it is ok in the sacks should I make holes in them?  thanks, Maggie

Thanks Daintiness.   I will now start to feed it with Tomorite. The writer of the article keeps his in a greenhouse - the best I can do with mine is a coldframe so that's where it can go for now.  Fingers crossed.   Maggie

What time of year do these flower ? How do I persuade my 10 year old plant (that I took from a flowering plant) to flower?  Please help before I loose patience and throw it out!  Thank you, Maggie

I usually use tomorite growbags for my tomatoes. I have been offered Erin  milti-purpose compost very cheaply so would it be ok to use that for the tomatoes?  I do know it is too early to plant up my toms just yet!  Many thanks, Maggie
