Does anyone know roughly how long manure should be left to rot down before using it on the garden? I assume this varies with time of year, and just want a rough idea.

6 - 12 months depending on time of year. As long as possible to make sure its well rotted. Straw bedding manure is better than woodchip by the way.

Thanks for this - I knew I should have started a heap last year!
