Composted manure vs gardens and shellfish compost

6 days ago

I've used both manure and vegie/shell composts. I use the compost in my planting hole and just around it.

I have not been consistent with which compost I've used year after year so I really can't pass judgement on either.

My soil is pretty much dirt on top and richer down below...not fabulous but richer than dirt. I finally have worms!

I have used both composted cow manure and compost containing Lobster, Oyster shells, and fruits and vegetables.

I'm fuzzy as to where Humus comes in.

I have a potassium issue as well as marginal numbers in many of nutrients

I know we have some serious composters here so thoughts would be much appreciated!

Thank you!
