Gloucestershire, United Kingdom
Well-rotted manure and vegetables: We've just started an allotment holders group, and I'd like to talk about the pros and cons of manure on specific veg; eg carrots tend to fang with manure - is that the moisture in the manure clumps that causes this? I've heard that scab and slugs are drawn to potatoes nestled in w-r manure; that peas tend to produce more foliage than peas when manured. I have some manure so w-r that it is like black earth, but most of the allotment holders have had their manure delivered more recently.
Thank you in advance for any comments - our meeting is on Thurs, 11/3.
