Book: Gardening Science - Soils, Manure and the Environment Chapter: Chapter 2: Manure. Sea weed manuring. Previous - Next. Sea-weeds, consisting of different species of Fuci, A'lgï¾µ, and Confervï¾µ, are much used as a manure on the sea-coasts of Britain and Ireland.

Table or book values of manure nutri-ent concentrations can serve as a starting point for planning near the same time every year to account for any sea-sonal changes, and preferably near or during land application.

I am very pleased with the quality and ingredients in this organic fertilizer. It includes everything you need to create healthy soil for your plants:mycorrhizae to aid in the root's water/nutrient uptake, microbes to aid in organic decomposition, trace minerals and a good ratio of N-P-K etc. Manure definition, excrement, especially of animals, or other refuse used as fertilizer.

SEA SOIL has a weed-free status - meaning it will not bring weeds into your garden unlike many other soils like those composted with manure. SEA SOIL increases organic content, is chemical-free and retains moisture. SEA SOIL is for use in plants, pots, containers and gardens or just anywhere you would like to grow plants.

Cattle manure is often collected as a slurry, does not have bedding materials mixed in with it, and will break down easily. For these reasons, cow manure is better than horse manure in a compost pile. Nitrogen level is lower than that for horse manure. Pig (hog) manure is collected as a slurry.   Chicken manure can be extremely “hot” or nitrogen rich and, if used too soon, can burn tender leaves and even more established plants.
