Can you please advise on spraying a new seeded lawn, including your recommended product.

Three weeks ago I sowed approx. 1100m2 of rye and kikuyu blend with excellent, lush results. However weeds - particularly broadleaf, are now appearing. Do you have a selective herbicide to control them without damaging the kikuyu or rye, and how long should I wait before spraying?
Many thanks.

Answer: Hi Ray,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

The product you need to apply is Yates Double Action Weed’n’Feed Hose On. You can see a picture of the product using the below link.

It’s a selective herbicide that only kills broad leaf weeds but not your Kikuyu grass. However, please make sure the lawn is at least 3 months old before applying the product.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
