Northamptonshire, United Kingdom
Fenland soil is the most fertile in our Country. It is the result of 1,000 years of rotting Reed Beds and animal dung. I am attempting to make an equivalent soil to offset Climate Change and hot dry summers. I have fetched 18 x 75litre compost bags of horse manure, and have stacked in under a shelter to keep it dry from leaching winter rains. Am hoping it will rot down. Then in the Spring I will mix the contents of 3 compost bins into it, and place in 8" deep trenches for my root vegetable seeds, grown in Peat pots to guarantee germination. Is anyone else doing this ? Can anyone give me further advice ? Please reply private message.
