Home Forums Champions’ chat Feed and Weed for Lawn? Reply To: Feed and Weed for Lawn?


When I moved into this house the lawns were truly dreadful & full of perennial weeds; chems were a must to make any progress at all …… then I discovered hedgehogs! I do still use weed & feed but am very fussy about when I’ll use it – during hog season I’ll only use it if it’s going to rain before the hedgehogs get up in which case it’s fine, it becomes harmless once properly wet and the smell is gone.

We were lucky this year because the grass started growing before the hogs emerged from hibernation so I got it done early enough to not worry. Some years it can be very frustrating waiting for the right day with late afternoon rain which may never come!
