Apply quick release Preseed Fertiliser prior to seeding amenity areas or ideally during seedbed preparation at a rate of 35- 50 grams per square metre.
Blended 6-9-6 gives the best start to all grass seed mixtures. If soils are particularly low nutrient, thin or sandy it may be an advantage to use 20-10-10 as a much stronger option.
Allow 3 to 5 days before sowing the area to ensure dust from the preseed fertiliser granules and the granules themselves are at least partially dissolve into the soil. This helps avoid any potential damage being caused to the delicate roots and/or stems of emerging seedlings being caused by direct contact with concentrated residues.
Should the seedbed be particularly dry wait 3 to 5 days after significant rainfall or irrigate the area well 3 to 5 days before sowing.
Applying quick release Preseed Fertiliser at exactly the same time as seeding grass mixtures can be successful but does carry some risk, especially if the seedbed is dry at the time of sowing and light rainfall occurs as the grass begins to germinate. This is far less of a concern with mid to late autumn sowings.
Preseed Fertiliser is essentially non hazardous and non toxic but please take sensible precautions during use.
