Manures are Organic in nature and as a result are considered more environmentally friendly.
They tend to contain less feeding than fertilizers but they have the advantage of also being a good source of Humus.
In raw form Manure contains bacteria that can generate a lot of heat and raise the temperature of the soil thus stimulating root growth even if the air temperature is still cold.
Manure used to be available direct from farms but nowadays farms tend keep their Manure for their own use as it is now considered economic and environmentally desirable to recycle animal waste .

There are four main types:

Farmyard Manure:
