Fertiliser Query - sc60

I got talking to an elderly customer the other day at work and while I was complimenting him on the quality of his plants he told me used a fertiliser which I think he called Sc60. He kept it in a jar so I didn't see the original packaging but he explained that he put a small scoop in his watering can during the growing season.

It looked a light pink or beige colour with the odd darker speck through it.

Anyway long story short I can't locate this anywhere. Would anybody on here have any ideas on this particular product?

Many thanks
Alan

    Try googling, if it’s there you’ll find it.

    Go back and ask him where he gets it from?

    I've never heard of it.

    The only fertilizer I know with numbers in the name is Vitax Q4 and the only thing Google came up with is the Starcol SC-60 photometer :(

    But that's chicken manure ... not really what I'd call pink ... and quite fibrous, it'd block the rose of a watering can ...

    It's good stuff tho .... I like chicken manure ... to put on the garden ... not on toast ... prefer peanut butter ... the crunchy sort.

    Years ago at a little village near Okehampton there was a chicken farm where they turned the waste into fuel and run their cars on it.

  • Further update is that the product is called Silvamix c60.

    Not any luck with stockists via Google if anybody knows where it is being sold I'd be very grateful.
