Ferti•lome WEED-OUT PLUS LAWN FERTILIZER controls a wide range of lawn weeds, including Dandelion, Chickweed, Knotweed, Plantain, Henbit, Spurgeand many others commonly found in home lawns. In addition, a 25-0-4 fertilizer provides a supply of plant food. Possible retreatment may be necessary if (a) lawn is heavily overrun by weeds, or, (b) if adverse low moisture conditions prevail and weeds are in a state of poor growth. A second application may be made in approximately 30 days. Do not use on Dichondra. Do not over apply. Under conditions of adequate moisture, high temperatures and high humidity, over-application may cause minor transitory discoloration on St. Augustinegrass. Do not use this on “Floratam” St. Augustinegrass.
Mow lawn to normal height 1 to 2 days before application.
Water lawn thoroughly at least 1 day before application to sustain moisture until the next watering (See Step 4).
Apply when weeds are young and actively growing, preferably in the morning when dew is on the grass. If grass is not moist at time of application, sprinkle lightly with water to hold the material and prevent dust drift onto non-target plants.
Do not wash from weed leaves for 1 to 2 days after application. At this time, a thorough watering should be made.
We sent a sample of our yards dirt to the Virginia Cooperative Extension who responded with the recommendation to use a 25-00-07 lawn fertilizer to bring it back to life. The best our search could produce was Ferti-Lome Weed-Out Plus Lawn Fertilizer 25-0-4. Well, our expectations were by far fulfilled by a wide margin. The icing on the cake so to speak was the built in weed killer. Our lawn care guy was speechless when it was time to cut the grass for the first time this season. The lawn looked like a plush deep pile carpet of bright green without a weed in sight, just beautiful. As a bonus, my wife has allowed me back into the house, at least for the season, we will celebrate tonight. ;o))
Put this out on my centipede lawn a couple of weeks ago and not a single weed was killed. Completely useless as a weed killer, pretty good fertilizer but does not kill weeds. Primary problem is the very large grain size, the product is too large to stick to the weeds (when they are wet) and the grains fall uselessly to the ground. Do not buy this if you're expecting to actually get rid of weeds. Have purchased numerous products from this web site that work very well - but not this one.
I ordered the fertilome with the hopes I could get the Florida pusley under control. I applied it as the bag instructs using a drop spreader. It's been a few weeks since it's been applied. I really don't see any change. Maybe it'll take a little longer for the results to become more evident. I'll give it another month and see how it looks.
What is the next step to kill lawn full of dandelions after applying Ferti-Lome Weed-Out Plus Lawn Fertilizer 25-0-4?
I put Ferti-Lome Weed-Out Plus Lawn Fertilizer 25-0-4 out 5 days ago and the dandelions are still coming out strong.
Ferti-Lome Weed-Out Plus Lawn Fertilizer 25-0-4 should be applied only twice a year. It will take longer than 5 days to notice results. Most seletive post-emergent herbicides require a minimum of 7-14 days to see changes. Per the product label, a second application is usually required for a heavily inested area of the lawn 30 days after initial treatment.
