Pig manure killing my westringias

I'm hoping you have a product that can counteract the phosphorus overload I have mistakenly applied to my garden. I put down composted pig manure 12 months ago and things are still dying. Mostly westringias. Do I need to
1. give up on natives
2. Wait a specified time to replant
3. Apply a product to fix the problem?
Hope you can help

Answer: Hi Sarah,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Unfortunately, we haven’t got any products registered for phosphorus toxicity. You may try replacing soil for natives, choosing non-phosphorus sensitive plants. You can also try digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser to balance the NPK which is a certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Louise
