all l can say ia he is selling at £3 a bag and lwondered if it was good for anything in a small flower garden



I think that any animal manure must be fantastic for any garden,whether it be for flowers or veg.

I reckon that a lot depends on how large the bag is for your three pounds.Because the Alpacka is not a common animal in this country,perhaps they consider the manure is also more valuable than if you were buying horse manure.

If you have any stables in your area ,I am certain that you could arrange to take a few buckets or heavy bags and collect what will go in your boot for free !!
My own daughter who has four horses is glad to get rid of the stuff !!.Which makes me a lucky girl !!

There are a lot of stables near here, or should I say a lot of people who ride - so we can usually find a near-ish neighbour who is only too pleased to let us come with our trailer and collect a load.

You might want to 'dilute' it with ordinary compost as we don't know how strong it is. Only use it on established plants and report back please!
