Do you really need to feed your soil, if it's in good condition, it will replenish itself, I don't usually feed the borders, but maybe I will put a bit of bone meal around this year. I usually just make a lot of compost through the year and put that on, the soil knows what it needs and will compensate. 

When we dug out a row of old coinfers, all I put on the soil then was the chicken pellets, nothing else, the plants all grew very well, sometimes there a bit too much feeding of soil than it really needs.

having said that, there are a lot of people on here that will say otherwise and feed with fish blood and bone, or bonemeal every year.

So true Jeff, I have used those, they do work but you have to wait until it's warmer.

There's not a great deal of food value in chicken pellets but it's a good soil improver, as your home made compost is.

I couldn't go around here collecting! One slug lays 400 eggs in a year and they all lay eggs. No males.
