Are the bags of manure that you sell ready to go right into your flower garden soil, or does it have to dry out or age? When do you put it in the garden and are there certain plants that are not good to have manure near them?

Bagged manure is ready to use. It's been aged and sterilized (no weed seeds) and can be used around any of your plants. Fresh manure can be too hot to use on seedlings and young transplants but bagged manure is safe to use anywhere in your flower garden. Keep manure or compost an inch or two away from the stems of your plants or it will hold too much moisture against them and cause rot.
