Conditioning soil and suppressing weeds
Northumberland Coast, United Kingdom
We have just got a small allotment. I got hold of some (about 1 ton) Alpaca manure and was going to spread the manure on the soil and cover it to kill all the weeds. We had been advised to use old wool carpet as it will rot into the soil. But we have been told by someone else that the carpet will act as a medium for weeds and cause more problems than it will solve.
Any advise as I have very little experience of allotment gardening or gardening in general.
