Apply a general pre-seeding fertiliser to the seedbed a few days before sowing the seed.
Once the lawn is established, it will require feeding regularly with an appropriate fertiliser to ensure good establishment and also to keep it in first class condition. The lawn should then be fed once in April, again in mid-summer and once more in September or October.
Fertiliser applied in April and mid Summer should have a good nitrogen content to encourage growth and colour. Fertiliser in September or October shouldhave a lower nitrogen content but a higher phosphate and potash content to encourage root growth and resistence to frost, drought and disease.
