My soil is poor. Is it true manure will help it? Should it be worked into the soil before planing?

If you are using raw manure, experts recommend mixing it into the top soil a few months before planting so it has time to break down. Planting with raw manure will often lead to burning plants.

If you are using manure that has already been composted, then it can be added in at anytime prior to planting.
