The Q&A Archives: what is aged manure

Question: I contacted you about my soil I can plant my bulbs once they arrive. My soil is very dry and hard. I was instructed to add compost or aged manure. I went to homedepot today and gargen was not sure what was meant by aged manure. Plz help!

Answer: If you look in the soil amendments area of the garden center you will find packages of potting soil, top soil, compost and sterilized manure. Any of these organic products can be used to improve your soil. I use whatever is on sale. The important thing to remember is that anything you mix into your soil will help improve tilth and drainage. Hope this clarifies things for you.
