RE: age of manure

An English grower by the name of Phil Damp used 6 inches of cow manure on his dahlia garden every year. He grew the best dahlias but they did not store well due to the high organic matter and nitrogen. Cow manure is very good and one year old is old enough to avoid most problems.
