I use a combination of seaweed, hens pellets and bone meal. I always use the potato pellets in the bags. I have been using this for years with some good crops and some poor, because of poor growing weather - too cold. I also have a compost bin and this goes on the ground usually around beginning of April and dug in to help breaking up before planting end of April beginning of May - all dependant on the weather.

If you've got anything organic but woody like old perennial stalks, shrub prunings etc. that take forever to compost, have a bonfire with them then use the ash either as a surface mulch or incorporate it with all the rest of the compost. Good worms are essential and they'll come by themselves in time, but if someone can give you some for starters, all the better. Tiger worms? Stripey jobs? I know them as brandlings. Incidentally, I've grown excellent tatties in a patch of soil where the cats used to crap.
