I've a large suburban lawn which was sowed last June and took really well over the wet summer last year. It was fed granular fertiliser 7-6-17 a few times.

Now (23rd March) the lawn is quite yellow, so needs feeding. There a bit of weeds here and there, docks, thistles, daisy's but no moss.

Will I continue to use 7-6-17 or something else?

Thanks !

Hi,

This month i start applying: Osmo: 15-3-8(+2 Mg)+1 Fe and i think you you should go with similar NPK numbers.
Added magnesium helps give lawns a deep, green colour, and "Fe"rrous for keeping moss at low level.

I will post pic after 3 weeks time to show how it works Smile

Thanks for that, I'll give that a try.

I've figured out how to attach pictures so here are two before grass got its first cut.

A nice crop of Schnauzer, I see. Will probably need specialist feeding?
