Horse Manure Compost

Well-Rotted Horse Manure

CPA Horticulture's nutrient rich well-rotted horse manure compost is a traditional alternative for those looking to avoid the use of chemical fertilisers. Made from horse manure, this compost is suitable for nearly any use.

Our horse manure is produced from composted shavings based stable litter produced by racing horses. Due to the animals' diet, this manure will not contain any seeds that could introduce weeds or other plants to your gardens, and our composting methods ensure that it is free of pests and pathogens, and does not have a particularly strong odour.

Horse manure compost contains a wide range of vitamins and minerals crucial to plant growth, including nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, making it ideal for use as a soil conditioner, surface mulch and an aid to planting for any keen amateur or professional gardeners

Horse Manure Compost: The Benefits

  • Increases the level of rich organic material in your soil
  • Increases the level of nutrients in your soil
  • Perfect for mulching roses
  • Contains no pests or pathogens

Happy to recommend, I have been in Horticulture over 30years now and it is clear that trying to find a decent product that is well rotted and clean with no bell bind is becoming increasing difficult let alone a job to get to site. This stuff is ticks all the right boxes, a good clean product delivered to site when you want it with a helpful driver. Many thanks Andy.

So far so good. I was kept informed about the shipment with a constant email update. The delivery of horse manure was made well within the 2 hour time frame and deposited exactly where I wanted it. Due to the texture of the product we were able to easily fill buckets and transfer them to our garden (we’re both in our 70s) and hopefully it will do its job over the coming months. Have ordered another giant bag for delivery next week to make sure the garden has a really good covering with this well rotted, no odour manure.

Good manure delivered on time. One point to note. I ordered 45 x 60 litre bags which all arrived on one pallet. This was really too bulky and heavy for the driver to unload safely and would be better delivered on two pallets. Other than that I was very pleased with the product.

Delivery was excellent and components of manure good but it was far from well rotted which worries me about scorching emerging plants as I'd been forced to leave purchase and application too late really.

Very impressed! We ordered 36 bags and are coming back for more. It's lovely stuff, highly recommended! The bags were delivered on a pallet at the end of the drive and we used a small car trailer to move them by hand, a few at a time, down a track to the back of our garden.

This is the second year of ordering from CPA Horticulture and I haven’t been disappointed yet. My order arrived nice and early this morning, which is great as it gives me all day to take them to the plot :) The PalletWay driver was very helpful, assisting me with getting the pallet up a lowered kerb to my back garden. As always, I am very impressed with the service and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending CPA Horticulture to family and friends.

good stuff as always, but as I’ve just stashed 20 black plastic bags into the non recycle bin, I’m very conscious of the amount of plastic in a palette load. I wonder if you are looking at more environmentally friendly packing options.

Waiting to receive this year's order, but used the manure last year and had a splendid crop of potatoes and onions despite the drought. It is well-rotted and weed-free so saves a lot of trouble and is less attractive to slugs, despite being, as suggested above, quite expensive. I look on it as a long-term investment for the soil.

Orders a pallet of the Horse Manure Compost, which was described as fully rotted horse manure, to mulch up the borders in the back garden in preparation for replanting in the spring. The compost was a wonderful crumbly texture and pretty much odour free. It kept all the weeds at bay and has done a great job at improving the texture of my sticky clay soil. I am planning to order another pallet full to incorporate into the soil of a new raised bed for vegetables and will be topping up the mulch on the borders. The website was easy to use and delivery was when expected. A great product, definitely to be recommended.

Second year we have had a bulk bag. Looks great but were disappointed to fine a used pair of surgical gloves and some sort of medicine dosing equipment in the bag along with a couple of quiet large stones. We watched with growing concern as the Palletways delivery driver's attempts to get our pallet off his truck - turned out it was his first time. He nearly has the load and/or himself off the edge of the tail lift several times. Also he arrived at 07:30.

Very helpful people at CPA. Changed delivery for me because of an appointment conflict. On day of delivery the Palletways people at Frome were most helpful when it seemed delivery may not be made that day and pallet was at a local hauliers yard. Only a rocket from Palletways effected a special delivery from the yard of the local haulier. The manure when it arrived was neatly bagged and on spreading out onto the garden appeared well composted and worked into my soil extremely well. Here's hoping for good results. Many thanks to CPA and Palletways. Unfortunately nil points to Chris Hayter Transport (the local haulier) who was positively unhelpful (almost rude) when I contacted them whilst tracking the delivery.

Excellent service from CPA Horticulture. The composted horse manure was well packaged and shrink-wrapped on a pallet. The compost itself is wonderful! It has been allowed to rot down to a usable friability with no smell of horses - just like iot should be. It is good as a general garden top dressing but also, mixed with normal compost & bonemeal, as a potting mix when planting out trees & shrubs. It really aids water retention around the roots.. Will definitely be buying from CPA in the future!

Third time that we have used CPA for these bulky materials. Quality of service and goods is high with attention given to any special needs (eg delivery dates etc). Far more convenient than garden stores with the 60 or 70l bags easy to move. We have also had 1 m3 bags which are OK if you have the space.

Delighted with my compost. Lovely and fine; easy to spread, and a nice grassy scent. My compost arrived 2 days early having been rung by the delivery company to check that was ok. I'm halfway through spreading my 36 bags, but will definitely order another palette once I'm done. Just trying to think in these days of plastic awareness, what to do with 36 black plastic bags.

I spent a long time searching for a reliable supplier of manure for my allotment, so when I came across all the positive reviews for CPA Horticulture I thought I would give them a try. Ordering via their website was incredibly easy, and my shipment arrived on the day I’d requested. When unloading the sacks, I was surprised to find that they were still warm (always a good sign) and that there was minimal odour (another plus!). Yesterday, I took five sacks to my plot and covered one of my raised beds with it. I saw straight away that this was quality stuff: there were no chucks of wood (often found in lower quality products) and no un-decomposed matter in the manure. It was a nice dark colour and it spread very well. I’ve got another 31 sacks to transfer to my plot before winter really sets in, but I’m optimistic that next years crops will be amazing!

I have never seen manure as good as this. There are no large pieces of straw and even though it’s -1 outside the bags are warm to the touch. It is very easy to work with and has a very good smell. I ordered 36 bags and will be ordering more for my allotment Keep up the good work
