Manure is strong stuff, and will burn your plants if it isn’t completely rotted. I used to get horse manure from a stable, but quit using it since it took a considerable amount of time to decompose and often introduced weed seeds into my soil.
I have an electric junction box in my landscape; can it kill trees and shrubs?
No. I’ve never heard of that. (Thanks to Courtney Blevins, CF, CA,Texas A&M Forest Service.)
