Chicken Manure and tree planting
I have a chance to get a truckload of chicken manure cheaply. Next spring I hope to plant 15-20 trees (fruit and decorative) over an area about 10 by 20 m of my garden.
Should I avail of this opportunity (there is no rush, they have loads of the stuff)?
If so, would you recommend getting it in the fall - spreading at once or leaving to rot down some more (it's
already standing a few weeks), maybe until just before planting time.
I can spread the stuff elsewhere on flower beds (not vege as they're well manured) if a truckload is too much for that area.
Thanks for any advice!
