How to Use Manure in the Greenhouse | Garden Guides.

Overview

Two of the major considerations for growing plants in a greenhouse environment is keeping them warm and preventing disease in the enclosed environment. Manure may play a factor in both processes.

Composting manure releases heat that can be used to mature plants early in hotbeds, while the composted manure may be mixed with peat moss to form a disease-free alternative to soil.
