Q.Alpaca Manure

Anonymous added on March 25, 2014 | Answered

A lady that raises Alpacas gave me 3 bags of manure. She told me it was great fertilizer and that I could use it directly on my garden without having to compost it or cure/age it. Seems a lot of sources say the same thing. I have heard from a few other people not to use it until it is composted because we will get sick from the bacteria in it. I am very new to gardening and am wondering if I should use this now. Any advice?

Alpaca fertilizer is not only great for flowers but is perfectly safe to use when growing fruits and vegetables. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/composting/manures/alpaca-manure-fertilizer.htm
