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.
