What to Expect
Plants will flourish for longer encouraging healthy growth. The chicken manure pellets will break down slowly releasing nutrients into the soil. For fast growing crops an additional feed may be required.
When to Use
Apply in the autumn when preparing winter beds or early in spring as a base fertiliser when preparing your beds for planting. Apply an additional feed 3-4 weeks after planting to ensure a top quality and healthy yield.
How to Use
All organic fertilisers depend on contact with moisture and soil to break down naturally; releasing their nutrients and enhancing soil fertility.
Therefore, for best results, the pellets should be worked into the soil (a hoe is usually ideal). During dry weather, water before sowing seeds and after planting.
Apply several days before sowing seeds, or planting out small/sensitive plants

*Use higher rates for sandy/starved soils and strong/vigorous plants. Use lower rates for rich/heavy soils and small/sensitive plants.
Check the vegetables weekly after planting looking out for signs of yellowing or poor growth and apply Gro-Sure® All-Purpose Plant Food to ensure fuller, tastier crops and high yielding vegetables.
