Q.Horse manure on vegetable garden

Zone 45036 | Anonymous added on January 10, 2019 | Answered

We live in Ohio, and my husband applied fresh horse manure to our vegetable garden around Christmas this year. I am concerned since it has not “aged” yet. We have nothing planted currently and do not plan to plant anything until May. I was wondering your recommendations as to if is not safe to leave it on the garden until planting, or if we should try to remove it and place it in a location to compost for longer. Thank you!

It is always best to try and compost manures, so if that is available to you, then I would go with that. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/composting/manures/horse-manure-compost.htm
