couldn't agree more MUM buy your manure on your own and let the others do there thing I use horse manure that's free they even put it in there trailer  I collect it every month and tip it on the allotments but I think cattle manure and straw is the best manure if you can get it  :unsure:

Has any one had problems with foxes digging up the plot because of chicken pellets? we used to use it but had to stop as the foxes loved it so much.

They often do that on our site, pesky whatsits  ::) I changed to 6X (the fibrous one) it doesn't seem to attract them as much as the pellets.

I had to stop using fish, blood and bone products because the foxes never got tired of digging it up, no doubt looking for the bigger 'prize'.

I've also had them digging up dried chicken manure too, but they do seem to learn that it doesn't taste as good as it smells :ohmy: and eventually leave it alone (probably cubs at some point on their learning curves.)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older
