Fertilising is one of the most important things you can do for your lawn.
Fertilizing your lawn should be done twice a year in Autumn and Spring. Fertilising in Autumn will have a significant impact on how the lawn looks in Winter. Although you can still fertilise a lawn in Winter, it will have less effect therefore costing you more time and effort for less results.
Fertilising in Spring will give your dormant winter lawn a boost and help prepare it for the long hot summer days. A well fertilised lawn will slow intruding weeds and use less water.
Tip: always water in fertiliser to prevent burning your lawn.
When it comes to veggie gardens, always use fully organic fertiliser, this should include a range of pelletised fertiliser such as composted chicken manure and organic liquid fertilisers such as worm tea or charlie carp. Best to fertilise at the end of each harvest and let the soil and fertiliser settle for a couple of weeks before planting out your next crop.
