Earth Matters Chicken Manure Pellets are ideal for soil improvement, planting and feeding of established plants.
Apply in the autumn when preparing winter beds or early spring as a base fertiliser when preparing your beds for planting. Then apply an additional feed 3-4 weeks after planting to ensure a top quality and healthy yield.
All organic fertilisers depend on contact with moisture and soil to break down naturally, releasing their nutrients and enhancing soil fertility.
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.
The chicken manure pellets will break down slowly releasing nutrients into the soil. For fast growing crops an additional feed may be required.
Check your vegetables regularly for pests or disease.
