6x chicken manure pellets

It's not 6x strength. It's just good quality chicken manure

The pellets are neater looking and shiny compared to other brands I've used with less dust, so possibly compressed a bit more than others.  I used it this year, mixed it with some hard wood ash, charcoal, home made vermicompost and then sprinkled some liquid seaweed extract in, a good mix in a bag and left in a shower of rain resulted in a well mixed powder that has been top dressed so far as ground waterlogged where I'm at.  Once the soil dries a bit it will be dug in with some perlite. Have used 6 X a few years and it's great stuff but not sure how much if any better than others it is.

I use 6x fibrous chicken manure, it's always done well for me. I go for about 2 (large hands) handfuls in each planting hole/tube about 6-8 weeks before planting out. I also add bonemeal and FBB, 1 large handful each, again about 6-8 weeks before planting out. Seems to do the trick for 6-8 weeks growth before they start showing signs of hunger. So IME topdressing 5-7 weeks after planting out is a good idea. That then gives you another 5-7 weeks until the plants are starting to flower, which is time to topdress some potash, as well as whatever other basic fertiliser you're using, ie, chicken manure, FBB, bonemeal.
