I planted a deep planter with good soil and steer manure. Nothing seems to be gowing very well or at all. Any suggestions?

Did you compost this manure first? Sometimes adding fresh manure over a certain amount will burn the plants. I would add dolomitic lime to help cancel out a little of the effect from the high amounts of nitrogen. I would be careful, and only add well composted manure to your soil. If you want to avoid the composting process, then rabbit manure can be used directly into the soil.
