Yet another weed-n-feed tip I thought of today.

5 posts in this topic

If you're using the granular weed-n-feed, you might want to buy double the amount you need, so you have another round's worth for the fall application.

Usually the stores will start to close it out come mid June, early July, since their marketing department will tell them that it's now time to get in the grub / insect control, so you can save a couple of bucks then.

Usually it's somewhat hard to find for that fall application, since 90% of people will think that it's time to get the dandelions now, and by the end of the year they're tired of putting money into the yard, even though that's the best time to do the application.

I have half bags of all kinds of weed & feed. Summer, spring, fall, and just feed. Is there any reason I couldn't just mix it all together and apply it to get rid of it?

There's really only two things that you MIGHT notice, although most likely not.

The first is that if the bags are somewhat old, that the effectiveness of the "Weed" part could be a little diminished.

The second, is that depending on the different formulations of the "Feed" part, you could get heavier growth since some of the bags could have either higher formulations of nitrogen, or less slow release.

Again, you may not even notice the difference in the products.

I would personally go ahead and use up those bags. It's not different than companies that have overstock of fertilizers. They'll offer different locations a discount to be able to spread those products, with a guarantee that there's at least a certain amount of whatever nutrient.

Another reason to get it now is probably around July 4 christmas stuff will be out and all the fertilizers and grass seed will go away.

That, and there's rumblings in the professional markets that fertilizers are going up another 10-20% come mid summer.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
