Bagged cow mature bought from the store is turned into your soil at spring planting time and also spread into the garden in the fall or winter to amend the soil.
Note: it must be manure that was aged for 6 months and free of weeds and seeds.
When you spread the aged mature in the spring, play it safe and till at least one month before planting crops.
You'll want a ratio of 40 lbs. per 100 square feet, turned into the top 6 to 9 inches.
