I have applied J arthur Bowers 3 in 1 lawn feed about 3 days ago and over the last few days I notice the grass has a white effect on it Question

when you look closely at the grass the very tip of each blade is white. Is this normal or is this bad. I am also wondering if it need more watering in as not much rain since it was applied.

any info appreciated.

I would water. The way that the 3 in 1 lawn feed works is that the moss/weedkiller granules are meant to fall off the narrow grass leaves and come to rest on the broadleaves of the weeds and the moss beneath. Rain helps to wash the granules off the grass and also get the feed to the roots.
The white tip may be damage, may not, but I would water especially if rain has not fallen for 48 hours after spreading.

It will do nothing but benefit the grass anyway. Smile
