    Hi Everyone,
    Thank you so much for your incredibly helpful advice. I’m now going to plant with landscape fabric only for the first year, then take it up, add compost/manure, and top with cardboard & wood chips for the longer term. I can foliar feed during the first year if necessary.
    Perfect. Off to plant today!
    Many thanks again,
    Dens

    That sounds very encouraging. Just got to check if our horse manure supply is Aminopyralid free and then I can get shovelling.
    Thanks Derek.

    Hi Everyone,
    It’s my first allotment, and I was planning to strim and then fill the 6″ raised beds in my new, very overgrown allotment with manure as there seems to be a plentiful free supply for the allotmenteers to help themselves to. I was thinking of approx. 4″ deep of manure on top of the good but weed/couch infested soil, then weed suppressant membrane on top. Then leave for 6 months – 1 year to sort itself. However, I’m now really worried about Aminopyralid. I will do a test as advised on the forum. However, if the test for Aminopyralid proves negative, is it OK to fill my beds with pure manure? Compost/soil can only be delivered to outside the allotment gates, and getting it spread before it goes walkabout would be really difficult.
    Hoping you can help and many thanks,
    Dens
