    I want to put our llamas manure in my garden. I'm wondering if I can just dump the pellets into the garden or if I need to do something else to them before I do?

    you can put ir right on your garden.
    llama manure does not "burn " like other manure.
    what i mean is it does not have to compost first. LOL.

    That's what I thought, but I wanted to make sure before I did. Thanks so much for your help!!

    Although composting manure is always great you don't have to with llama manure. As stated above, it's not so hot that it will burn your plants like horse manure will.

    Maybe katrinag was more worried about weed seeds than burning - like horse manure.
