I have just spread some bags of 6X, as per instructions, on the garden. It is not a large garden and the smell is quite potent! I was wondering how long the smell would be noticeable for.
Water it in and the smell should disappear quite quickly. If not just tickle it into the soil a bit so it's covered up.
What is 6x?
It pongs. Good stuff though
Nut, do you use it on beds, or just on lawns?
Anywhere artjak. I used to sprinkle it around like bone meal or similar products.
I thought it was something that you put in cars
HollieH, I thought it was an Australian lager
Maybe it's what Australian lager is made from.
That thought did cross my mind also, I think I'm might be confusing it with 4 stroke
..a blast from the past for me, I haven't used this since the 1980's... very rich and you don't need to use so much... the smell didn't last long, if I recall...
4 stroke, lager, 6x. Not much to choose between them
it's not lager it's bitter and a very nice one. Not like manure at all. Might be a Wadworth Brewery pint,
6X is 6 times concentrated Farm Yard Manure. Instead of putting it on thick, you only have to sprinkle it around. It does pong though. Often a very strong smell of ammonia when you open the sack.
When I used to use it our neighbour's dog would come over for a snack. Loved it.
I use organic chicken manure pellets; the smell is really yuk.
It'll put hairs on your chest!
