Lawns • Product Advice

Hi Lynn,

You are obviously referring to the Weed n Feed Granular product. This product contains sulphate of iron and sulphate of ammonia, When applied to the grass, the fine powder will fall off the vertical blade of the grass and settle on the flat horizontal blade of the weed. It is important that you moisten the grass before applying the product. The product is left there for 2 days and in that time it will burn out the weed. With regard to mowing the lawn before applying the product, it is important, for the product to be effective, that there is enough leaf surface of the weed being present so that the product can settle evenly on the weed. If after the lawn has been mowed, there is no enough weed present, then perhaps wait a few more days before applying the product. Once the product has been there for 2 days, it should be watered in thoroughly after that period of time.
