How long after seeding can I use this fertiliser?

Many thanks

Hi Peter

We would recommend that you wait until the lawn is fully established before applying this fertiliser, usually around 6-8 weeks after sowing.

I'm putting together my lawn maintenance plan for the year and have a problem which how much fertiliser to use and when. The slow release spring / summer fertiliser can be applied in March and lasts 4 months i.e. end June. The Slow release Winter can be applied in August. As there is a gap in July should I re-apply the Spring / Summer in July (assuming it rains) and the Winter in November? OR delay the Spring until April?
Many thanks Ian

Hi Ian

I would recommend applying the SLOW RELEASE: Spring Summer in March, taking you through to June, you can then apply again. Hold off on applying the SLOW RELEASE: Autumn Winter until later, in and around October will still be fine. As long as it is down before the frost sets in. I hope this helps.

Can you apply in the rain?
Question by: Pete on 7 Mar 2021, 10:45
Hi Pete

Yes you can apply in the rain, the rain helps the fertiliser to dissolve. However you must not rely on it completely and you may need to water to ensure it is fully dissolved.

Is this product pet safe (dog) I have planted child and pet seed what fertiliser is pet safe to go with your seed?

Hi Lawrence

This is a granular product and will need watered until fully dissolved. Once it has dissolved it is safe to allow pets back on the lawn.

Hi, I brought your spring/summer fertilizer and shade grass seed a little while ago, with the plan to put the fertilizer down in March and the seed in May. Obviously I've missed that window. When would you now suggest putting both down?
Thanks Michelle

Hi Michelle

The grass sowing season is generally from March - September, so there is still time. You can confidently sow grass seed when temperatures are 8-10 degrees and above consistently for at least two weeks with no adverse weather conditions forecast. Always consult a two week forecast prior to sowing.

Hi again
Shall I put the fertilizer down first or new grass seed?
Question by: Michelle McCabe on 5 May 2021, 08:54
You can do either, apply it prior to sowing or wait until the lawn is established then apply.
If you plan to apply prior to sowing, ensure the product has fully dissolved before you sow the seeds.

Hi, I just laid some turf down. Is this fertiliser suitable to apply a few days later? Does it help the grass to establish? If so, which one is recommended quick or slow release?
Thank you.
Question by: Annie on 13 May 2021, 09:18
Hi Annie

The SLOW RELEASE: Spring/Summer Fertiliser will help thicken any existing grass and help establish a strong root system. I would give it another few weeks before applying though. Let the turf settle before applying anything.

Can you offer smaller bags? 20kg is too much for my size lawn. Would save on cost too.
Question by: Scott on 1 Jun 2021, 18:09
Hi Scott

Unfortunately, we only sell fertiliser in 20kg bags however, these can be stored and re-used when required.

Our fertiliser will keep for up to four years if stored in a cool dry place.

Many thanks

Hi Paul

A lack of nitrogen encourages the fungus to take over so you might consider the Quick Release: Spring Summer for faster results. it is a 6-week intensive feed that thickens up the grass and makes it very green and lush.
It can be applied every 6 weeks in spring / summer. Our recommended spreading rate is 70g per m2. It is a granular fertiliser and needs to be watered until fully dissolved - you should mow your lawn before application.

You can then maintain the condition of the lawn throughout the winter with the SLOW RELEASE: Autumn / Winter Fertiliser.

I have what appears to be brown patch on my new turf laid about 7 weeks ago. It was looking fine and great and then these patches appeared after the week of rain we had. I was mowing once to twice a week at 6.5cm after 3 wks but I wondered if it was too high. I mowed at 4.5 cm 2 days ago and seems a little short now but the top of the soil is less wet now and the sun is getting to it now and I've aerated areas. I've even raked to remove thick bits of grass getting cloggy at the base.
Will quick release fertiliser or slow release help? I would wait another few days before I watered it because it has only just stopped feeling wet. It tends to get damp easily because neighbours both have raised gardens and there is a constant base dampness at one side of the fence. I may have over watered at the start too when rain came, and watered too late in the day

Hi Sharon, at this stage of the summer then you are best to go with the Quick Release: Spring/Summer Fertiliser. This is an intense feed that will nourish the lawn for up to 6 weeks
