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.

    •   You need to stop eating those funny mushrooms before wondering around in the woods like that. You could get lost! Lol
    • No, not morels (at least not here), but I saw two different species of mushrooms on a little walk through a local woods: the "orange peel fungus" (aleuria aurantia) and one little brown mushroom that I couldn't identify.  The season isn't that far away!!

    •   How about the plan that has proven effective in Portugal that I've told you about several times now? Are you just going to keep ignoring it and continue to ask silly questions?
    • Weather around the state has and will continue its fickle behavior as we close out an exceptionally warm week and move toward a significantly cooler weekend. Rain and snow are predicted across the state, with temperatures expected to fall rapidly Friday into Saturday, leading many to wonder if any of this precipitation will stick around long enough to revitalize the snowmobile and ski trails. Currently snowmobile trails remain open in a few northern counties, but conditions are very poor with bear spots and some standing water according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails have similar conditions where they remain open.Eagles are congregating along the Mississippi River just in time for Bald Eagle Appreciation Days at Prairie du Chien this weekend.Photo Credit: Donna HigginsThe warm front has also strongly effected ice-cover on state water bodies and anglers are also eagerly waiting to see what the weekend's cold front will provide. The ice on southern lakes is deteriorating fast and is unsafe to fish. Even in the Northwoods some waters are breaking up and where the ice is still thick there is plenty of water on it, and areas of open water have started to show up along shorelines and in marshes and especially around beaver lodges. As a result, many anglers have taken advantage of warm temperatures for open water fishing. This past weekend 100 plus boats were fishing the Fox River from the 172 Bridge to the dam at Voyageur Park. Anglers in boats have been having mixed results catching coho salmon and brown and rainbow trout in the Milwaukee Harbor and in Oak Creek. Anglers were open water fishing the Rock River for walleye and sauger, where the bite was on at the Indianford Dam. Sauger and walleye were biting on Lake Wisconsin. Warm temperatures and rain will have the Wisconsin River back above flood stage this weekend. .
    •   My two cents... if you use vinyl you will never have to replace it again. When is the water ever going to hit it and STAY moist? That is what carpet does, vinyl will allow the water to roll right off.
