    Just put a shovel-full of manure in a 5-gallon bucket, fill with water and use it to water everything!

    I use rabbit manure all the time. I put about one third bucket of manure fill with water in s five gallon bucket. Then I let it sit for a day or so and then stir. I use it on my rose bushes and garden about every two to three weeks. It is wonderful fertilizer. Although you do end up planting seeds of other plants the rabbits have eaten. We usually feed the rabbits the guts out of the Halloween pumpkins and I have a lovely pumpkin vine in my rose garden this year. Horse and cow manure should sit one to two years before use in a garden so it won't burn your plants. that is the reason I use the rabbits.

    Soak the manure in a bucket of cold water for a day & pour 'tea' off until you can see the manure. You can refill the bucket with fresh water & repeat the process several time. Be careful where you use it though as horses in the pasture eat weeds & wherever
    you use the 'tea' weeds may follow!
