Using Grow More to help establish your lawn

Using Grow More to help establish your lawn
19th July 2012 Lawn UK

Establishing a lawn from seed can be quite easy to complete. The result will depend largely on how well you prepare the seedbed, the weather that you have, and the type of seed that you chose. There is however a way that you can give your lawn the very best start.

Growmore is a garden fertilizer with many different applications. It’s a great thing to use to establish a new lawn. When sowing your lawn seed, it is possible to work some Growmore fertilizer into the seedbed before sowing the seed in order to improve the soil fertility, and therefore the grass growth.

Lawn seed will establish well on its own, but adding Growmore is a effective, cheap method of helping your lawn to establish quickly. The rate at which you should spread Growmore, depends on the rate at which you sow the seed. Usually, you should apply the same volume per m2 of Growmore and lawn seed.

Growmore is an all purpose fertilizer, but it’s not a good idea to use it on an established lawn. There are many alternatives.

    I’ve had a very large vegetable patch turfed and my neighbour says I need to sprinkle growmore on it now. My husband says not who is correct. I’m a novice taking over from my elderly husband who has gardened his entire life,

      Hi Rita,

      We’d generally advise not to on new turf as it can cause damage due to the high nitrogen content. When did you lay the turf? If it’s well established there are other fertilisers you could consider.

      Best regards

    Hi, i will be overseeding my lawn soon using your sprogs and dogs seed, there are a few bare patches to fill in and then thicken up the rest of lawn. Is Growmore suitable for this? If not which other fertiliser do you recommend?

      Hi Matt,
      Growmore should do the trick for this, just take note of the recommended sowing rate. If you have more questions send us a message via the website “contact us” page, we can then contact you directly
      Best regards
