Composed manure is great for almost all aspects of gardening. When creating a new bed, mix it into the soil following directions on the bag. It is good for top-dressing (putting it around plants a bit away from stems) and I even use it in potted plants by mixing it into the potting soil. I use both sheep and cattle manure - it should always be well composed, of course. Fresh manure is "too hot" and can burn plants. It is an excellent product and I have never noticed an odor that was offensive.
