I've built a couple of raised beds in my back garden and my intentions are to grow onions, garlic, beans & peas in them. So this weekend I'm thinking off emptying my old grow bags into the beds then laying a whole load of horse manure on top to hopefully put some nutrient back into the spent compost. Will this work ?.

My father-in-law, oone of the old-school who had an immaculate garden (you could see people on the bus turn their heads to look as they passed) surprised me by being absolutely against horse manure. Horses eat seeds, which are designed to pass through digestive systems unscathed as their method of dispersal, and the result is a weedy garden. Only chemical fertilisers on his garden and it makes us very careful what we put on our compost heap.
