Is it good to use manuer to revive frost damaged plants ?
I am putting manuer with compost on the plants that were damaged from the frost . Can you please tell me if this is a good idea and also how close to the stem base should it be applied . A friend of mine says she does this and the plants come to life and bloom well. Thanks , Carol

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. Manure is basically organic fertilizer and can help your plants push out more new, healthy growth. But you should only use manure if it's aged (at least a year old) --- otherwise, it may contain too many salts and harm your plants.

I'd mix it evenly in your soil and keep at least a gap of an inch between it and any of your plant stems.
