My Uncle Bill always said the best time to start digging in manure is as soon as the last of your vegetables are out, giving maximum time to breakdown and cool down over the winter. This way your vegetable plots will be perfect for planting come spring time.

“Its a lovely product, our best so far which flows out of the bag and easily works in to the garden.” Arthur Woodfield.

When to Dig in Well Rotted Farmyard Manure

Digging the soil is essential for good plant growth. If the soil condition is poor organic matter can be added at the same time as digging.

The best time to dig is from October through to December , when the soil is free of frost and can be left to overwinter,but ground that is lacking in fertility manure can be dug in any time. From mid-winter until early spring, the ground is frequently wet or frozen and difficult to work with. Heavy soil must never be dug when it’s wet as this can damage the soil structure and lead to poor aeration and drainage


For gardens that just need an injection of fertility over a complete restructuring from top to bottom, it’s more than enough to add a thick layer of compost/manure on top of your existing soil.

The recommended amount varies, but a couple of inches should be more than enough. You can always top up the amount of manure in subsequent weeks. Monitor performance and alter accordingly – the key is to get to know your garden and giving it what it needs. knowing when and how much’ will only come with time and experience.
