Gerry, I have a good quantity of (old) stable manure. My beds are pretty mature, now, with plants growing into/against each other, leaving no space for manure to be put in between. Is there a handy way of getting manure to the plants (perhaps mixing with water to make a slurry and pour it out)?

Plants do not generally need much feeding, once they are established and you might be better not to bother. But if you want to spread it, just to clear it, just scatter out when the plants are dormant in winter and the leaves are out of the way, over flowers or shrubs.

Making up a slurry would be very laborious and unnecessary.
