It’s very straw-y and clumpy. Is it decomposed enough to use for no dig? How can i tell? Plants are ready to be transplanted now. Cheers, Joe Attachments:You must be logged in to view attached files. 18th May 2019 at 8:39 pm #70313 charlesModerator Looks fine to me, just break up the lumps after removing any larger clumps of straw. Old manure is rarely perfect compost, but I see lots of lovely dark lumps there. You can plant into it after spreading asap!
