If you’re concerned about the manure you use in your garden, the Royal Horticultural Society has advice for an alternative that excludes animal excrement
Manure is mostly animal excrement – which cannot be guaranteed to come from free-range animals. This is a problem for vegan gardeners, who may also not be keen on the fish bones and animal blood sometimes found in some common composts.
But Guy Barter, the chief horticultural adviser at the Royal Horticultural Society, says that most vegan-friendly alternatives are just as viable in a domestic garden setting. “The same can be said of fertilisers – these, too, are equally effective, whether acceptable to vegans, such as seaweed fertilisers, or otherwise.”
