hi all .
I live on the coast , about 100metres from the beach and would like to know the best manures for enriching my soil . I have previously been using layers of horse manure, sea grass & pea straw with a compost bin in the centre of each plot that I rake out over the patch before I plant my seedlings. This I have done now for approx 5 Years and the soil is good but not as healthy as I would like it . I use no insecteside or pesticides ( even organic ones )as I am able to harvest good quality vegies without disrupting the natural order or cycle of things (might sound a tad strange to not want to kill off pests & disease) but I belive everything has a purpose & know plants have their own way of fighting pests and diseases. The key to this is the soil they grow in, I would rather put my efforts into creating healthy soil not destroying natural processes. The reason I ask the question of manures to use is in some crops I have noticed they struggle and certain diseases are really detrimental to growth and fruiting.
thanks for your time and help
