Why not try and see if there is a farmer local to you who has organic manure available, I filled a trailer for 10 euro 2 weeks ago and used it on my beds

Nice Idea Cuemaster, but the neighbours complained last year when I put a strong smelling mulch around my roses. So for the sake of peace and harmony, I am going with some seaweed fertilizer!!

Ironically my neighbour complimented my roses last summer!!

If the manure does smell then it's not ready, it should be at least 1 year old

I could not get well rotted manure last year so I bought a special mulch for the roses. I have tried a few farmers near me and none of their manure is rotted enough for me to use. Thanks for the info anyway, but I am looking forward to trying the seaweed fertilizer.
