I used these manure in my garden this spring, then covered them with organic top soil; my lettuce and tomato plants had never grown so big and so well! people were all impressed how strong my vegetables are doing. Please see a picture of my lettuces.

This was an excellent product I used Black Kow for my vegetable garden. In the areas where I spread it a lot it led to continuing bearing of fruits from tomatoes and even my potatoes. I love this product because of dark rich color and smooth yet rough texture. Finally, I would recommend this product to anyone because it's cheap price but great use every essential nutrient that flowers or vegetable plants needs it surely has. I WAS VERY WELL PLEASED

Rated 2 out of 5Â by TomatoGarden Sand filler lowers NPK
I have used composted cow manure for years with great results. This is the first time I bought this brand. Anyone examine the content can tell it has been filled with coarse sand(lots of it) but sand is not on the ingredients list. With sand, it would be better drained than the regular composted manure and cheaper to fill up the bag.
If you use it in a raised bed, watch for the moisture level. Because it depends on how much of this is used relative to existing soil, you may end up not retaining enough water and have the plants die in summer heat.
I made my own compost and didn't have enough made this year so I tried this one and is not happy with the sand filler and plants dying from thirst.
Another solution I tried was to use dehydrated manure mix with peat and let it sit out for months (and put some earthworms at work) before using them. Or just use an old bag of dehydrated manure from last year to top dress the soil. Either way, it beats adding coarse sand to my soil.

You can never add too much composted manure, it is organic, and always wonderful amendment to any soil type. It helps to break up our clay soil. However it is an over time product with results not immediate.

I've used this product for many years from anywhere as potting soil for my container garden to top soil when re-seeding grass.
