Good question medieval knievel. unrotted fym can burn plants especially young plants and most especially if it is to come i to direct contact with young roots. Bad smell = hold off. No smell = ok to go.
It can be used as a mulch on existings and worked ito the soil for new plantings.

This thread is a load of **** Laughing Seriously though spider, a sweet smell should mean it is ok to use with care. As long as it does not smell of **** . To be on the safe side I would mix it well with soil in the base of the hole or else spread it as mulch about an inch thick. Do you know if it is cow or horse manure? Horse manure is better for flowering plants like roses but cow is better for all round growth I believe.
