not too late yet. You can still put on manure for cabbages cauliflower and sprouts as well as potatoes.

Thanks Michael.

Does that mean it is not OK for things like beans, peas etc ?

Cheers

Hi, Flynnboy - I tend to look to Mother Nature for guidance and, as the animals put their manure on the ground all year round, if I get hold of some I use it.

if manure is scarce then do not give it to peas and beans as they provide their own Nitrogen. Give it to the crops that benefit most like potatoes and brassicas.
