Hi There, Last night I applied Yates Weed 'n' Feed Granular to our santa anna couch. Although the weather forcast said cloud and no rain today it rained this morning. Will the weed 'n' feed have any effect since it rained 12 hours later? How long do I have to wait to re-apply the product if it will not work?

Hi Damien,

Further to our conversation this morning regarding the application of Weed n Feed Granular on your Santa Anna couch lawn, if it rained 12 hours later, it will simply fertilise the lawn area. This product contains sulphate of ammonia and sulphate of iron. When applied to the moist flat weeds in your lawn and left for 2 days, it will have a burning effect on the weeds, killing them off. After 2 days the product is watered in and this is when it has the feeding action of fertilising the whole lawn area. You can re-apply the product again in 6 weeks or, if you prefer you can use a selective herbicide such as Buffalo Pro which will kill off those weeds. Wait 7 days now before applying the Buffalo Pro.
