What is the difference between

6X Fibrous Chicken Fertilizer and 6X Pelleted Chicken pellets.
I am restricted to growing in containers, pots, bins etc. and probably don't need much I just wonder if there is any difference.

sorry i don't know. if you read the containers it should give you a break down of the nutrients.

The fibrous 6x looks like compost, smells like manure, and seems to improve soil texure as well as fetilising, whereas the pellets just seem to fertilise, without improving soil condition - if that makes sense?

I use both pelleted and fibrous pelleted 6x for tubs and pots because its better for that use and  fibrous for raised beds and open ground plantings

although i don't feel that both pelleted or fibrous actually improves the soil but yes it does improve the plant growth as a quick fix and has the same effect as me using high pelleted nitrogen again a quick fix but i piont out thats my opinion

i believe the only thing that improves my soil is a good load of farm manure that i use on my allotments for both open planting and raised beds excluding the root beds but i am yet to try green manure this season so can't say if that will improve our soil?

Please help how do I tell the difference???!!!
