What are your thoughts on using composted steer/cow manure mixed into top few inches of soil before direct seeding flowers?
Oh, good. I was trying to find a thread I could hijack and this is perfect. I ordered 5 yards of compost from a farm, which is going to be delivered today. I think I imagined that it would be a lovely leafy product made from vegetable tops, rose petals and some manure, and other sweet things like my own compost is made from. I asked the man this morning what the compost consisted of. Manure, blood, bones, straw, and wood chips---in that order. I'm guessing this outfit runs a slaughterhouse. Grim stuff. 1 1/2 years old and screened. The man on the phone told me that he guarantees I'll order more next year.
