Store bought compost/manure: What do I look for/Look out for?
    #3634666 - 01/16/05 12:54 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I leeched a bunch of horse poo, and then left it in the sun to dry.  I left it for almost 2 weeks, so now it has some stuff growing through it.  It took like an hour to collect :frown:  Oh well, now I'm looking at different options.

I'd like to buy some compost or cow manure from Home Depot.  What brand should I buy, and what brands or ingredients should I stay away from?

Thanks in advance


**Edit**
Just did a search, found some useful stuff.
Plz answer anyways :wink:

Next time...let the horse poo dry out in the sun without leaching it first.

then try... The Horse Poo Tek

Make sure if you buy compost or cow manure from the store that they don't have mushroom unfriendly killers in them...they will be labeled as such.

Good luck!~

AFOAF had a few failures with store bought manure, did some research and found out the manure he'd bought has fungicide in it even though it's not labeled. Apparently, they're not required to list fungicides and stuff like that.

Just get one labeled organic. AFOAF uses scott's organic 3 in one, but he'd like a good alternative.

"A nation's hope of lasting peace cannot be firmly based upon any race in armaments but rather upon just relations and honest understanding with all other nations...

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed... The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people..."

President Dwight Eisenhower, 1953

Really?

Wow

They used to list if it had fungicides on the label.

This isn't good for the mushroom grower!~

Guess it's trial and error time...that sucks.

Glad I use horse poo!~

Scott's 3N1 formulation differs, depending on what USA area plant it was made from. So, some 3N1 is better than others.
