Hey all
so I've planted Hokkaido pumpkin plants and used horn shavings/chips but i know people who use horse manure the problem is my wife won't let me use "fresh" manure, are the pellets any good. which is better does it matter can i mix and match.

Whatever the horse ate will be growing in your garden next year! VERY weedy as their digestive system does not kill weed seeds. Also be cautious of hay from fields sprayed with herbicides, it also travels through horse digestive systems and will kill your plants, too.
