Product Description

After a harsh winter Quick Release: Spring/Summer will give your lawn the boost it needs to bring it right back to life. Quick Release: Spring/Summer is a fast-acting fertiliser which promotes the immediate healthy growth of grass - providing you with an instantly green lawn. You can apply two applications of this each summer – we recommend one in early April / May, and one in early July. 

Please note this fertiliser can scorch your grass blades, so remember to water it off or apply just before the rain is due. Avoid application during very hot periods. We recommend applying on cooler evenings or overcast days. For more information on all things fertiliser, read our Fertiliser FAQs.

Mixture Breakdown

NPK 9.7.7

Usage Guide

Apply our fertiliser at the recommended rate by hand when wearing a glove or by using a spreader
Water the fertiliser in until it dissolves
Keep kids and pets away from the lawn during application and until the granules dissolve
Remove / water off any footwear you were wearing during the application of the fertiliser to avoid any risk of damage to newly laid patios / stone flag flooring

Not watering your fertiliser in can potentially scorch existing grass or delay the benefits of the fertiliser.If after watering the fertiliser does not disappear and dissolve off the surface, water until you cannot see the granules.

You can use this fertiliser any time you plan to do overseed or sow a new lawn. For a general lawn feed that promotes greeness for a longer period of time or will protect your lawn going into winter, you may wish to consider our Slow Release: Spring / Summer or Slow Release: Autumn / Winter fertilisers.

Use March to August
Spreading Rate 70g per m2
Watering This fertiliser MUST be watered in - granules should not be visible after application if watered in suffciently.

Aftercare

If you are planning to overseed or sow a new lawn from scratch, you can do so once the fertiliser granules have dissolved

Product Questions

Hi - What setting should I use with an Evergreen Easy Spreader? Not sure if mine is Easy Spreader or Easy Spreader Plus, but do you have recommended settings for both please?
Question by: dave jepson on 15 Mar 2021, 15:01
Hi Dave

Whilst we can't be exactly sure as it is not our product. If it is the Easy Spreader Plus then you can try setting 4.5 for 2 passes. I can not find any details regarding a general "easy spreader".
Answer by: Roisin McCann on 15 Mar 2021, 15:33
I over seeded my lawn last august and it was nice and green. Used the pre seed fertiliser and followed up with your simply seed.

However this spring it started to turn yellow in lots of patches. I applied some of the quick release pre seed and it turned nice, thick green lawn but couple months later gone back to the dry yellow straw like lawn in most places. Not sure if I need to scarify and oversees or apply another type of fertiliser?

I only used the pre seed fertiliser as I purchased couple bags from you previously and had some left over. Guessing I need some summer feed but not sure if it should be quick or slow release?
Question by: D on 7 Jul 2022, 21:05
Hi, thank you for your question.

Yes, it would be fine to use up your QUICK RELEASE: Pre Seed fertiliser.

All of our QUICK RELEASE fertilisers provided 6 weeks of feed, whilst our SLOW RELEASE fertilisers provide 14-16 weeks of feed. Once the feed duration is up, you can feed your lawn again.

There are many reasons for yellow patches on your lawn, and it may be due to a lack of nitrogen, pet urine or common garden diseases. We have a blog post on our website which might be of interest to you: https://thegrasspeople.com/whats-going-lawn/

I have also included our step-by-step guide on how to overseed an existing lawn below:

● Remove any dead grass, weeds or moss by scarifying/raking the area
● Rake the area enough so that the soil is loose and not compact
● Sow the seed at our recommended rate of 35g per m2, by using a seed spreader or your hand
● Rake the seed in after sowing so that the seed is in amongst the soil
● Firm down by foot or by using a roller to improve seed-to-soil contact
● Water the just-sown seed well

Hi
I have just used the spring summer fertiliser on my new soil, how long until it dissolves? Then I can seed?
Question by: Alex Bungey on 30 Jul 2022, 05:26
Hi Alex, thanks for the question! Once applied, you should water your fertiliser until it fully dissolves and you can no longer see the granules. I would also recommend waiting for the fertiliser to run its 6-week course before seeding your lawn.

Best treatment for “Red Thread” please
Question by: Geoff Warrington on 8 Jul 2021, 09:16
We would recommend a nitrogen rich feed such as the QUICK RELEASE: Spring/Summer Fertiliser. A lack of nitrogen can encourage the fungus to spread so keeping on top of this will help clear the red thread and a regular feed will prevent it from returning. We do have a blog post on red thread, you will find it in our Help & Advice section and it be worth a read.

I have laid a new lawn this spring on clay soil, i fertilised prior to sowing the new lawn, the lawn has taken but is turning yellow in some patches, is it safe to fertilise again? Many thanks
Question by: Jenna biwhop on 30 Jul 2021, 21:09
Dog urine, particularly that of female dogs, is very high in nitrogen. This high nitrogen content burns your lawn (turning it yellow and dry). Use a quick release fertiliser such as our QUICK RELEASE: Spring / Summer on the rest of the lawn (avoiding the already very green patches) to achieve one uniform colour on the lawn.

Hi
I have a dog so instead of a granular feed for the lawn do you do a soluble one so I can put it on with a watering can
Question by: Jim gilbertson on 31 Jul 2021, 07:13
No, unfortunately our grass seeds are granular.
Answer by: Eva Greene on 2 Aug 2021, 08:36
Hi, going to scarify our lawn in March/ April but then looking to get fertiliser and a grass seed to overseed. Do I apply this and seed a mixed together in spreader or separate but in same day or so I leave a period between them?

Also do you do a moss killer?
Thanks
Question by: Steven Stewart on 19 Feb 2021, 20:18
Hi Steven

Apply the fertiliser first, this is a granular product and must be watered until fully dissolved. Once dissolved you can sow your seed. We also have a Pre Seed Fertiliser which may be an option.

We have a Feed, Weed & Mosskiller, it works over the course of two weeks to eradicate weeds and moss - where it is particularly prevalent patches will appear and these will need seeded. It will also feed your lawn and make any existing grass very green and lush. It is a granular fertiliser and needs to be watered in after application.

Trying to decide between the slow release and quick release, what are the key things I should think about picking between the two?
Question by: Bill smith on 28 Sept 2021, 11:03
Hi Bill, the main difference is the length of time the fertiliser will protect the garden. If it is the Autumn Winter fertiliser you are considering then you are in good time for the Slow Release option, this will release nutrients at more controlled rate and protect the lawn for up to 16 weeks. If it is a Spring/Summer and you want to give the area a quick boost before winter sets in then I would recommend the Quick Release option as this works over a period of 6 weeks.

Can you get bigger bags?
Question by: Paul D on 6 Oct 2021, 16:38
Hi Paul, the 20kg are our biggest bags.
Answer by: Roisin McCann on 7 Oct 2021, 08:26
I have a pretty compacted clay lawn and we're obviously just coming out of a wet and cold winter. Do I need to scarify the lawn before fertilising - or is that only before seeding?
Question by: Will on 28 Feb 2022, 12:06
Hi Will,
There's a few things you can do to ensure a successful overseeding, especially with clay soils. Our blog on this will help point you in the right direction; https://thegrasspeople.com/get-best-clay-soils/.
