    I agree with Verdun - I apply FB&B a little while before planting. 

    I only use chicken manure pellets on the areas where I'm going to grow leafy veg such as brassicas and salad crops.  I find that if I use it on areas where I'm growing beans, peas, root veg etc, they put on too much leaf at the expense of the roots or seeds which is what I'm growing them for.
