    Q
    After spreading Scotts Turf Builder Bonus S Southern Weed and Feed 2, will a heavy rain on the same day, wash away the fertilizer?
    A

    Scotts Turf Builder Bonus S Southern Weed and Feed 2 is a granule which must be watered in immediately after application, either through irrigation or rainfall. If you are expecting very heavy rainfall, then it is usually best to wait until after rain so that you have better control of the irrigation of the product. With very heavy rain right after the granules are put down, you may get some movement of the active ingredient which can create uneven or sporadic weed control.

  • Asked by Jeremy from Lake Charles, Louisiana
    02/25/2018
    Q
    Why can't you spread Scotts Turf Builder Bonus S Southern Weed and Feed 2 with a hand held spreader?
    A

    The product label for Scotts Turf Builder Bonus S Southern Weed and Feed 2 does specify that the product should not be applied by hand or in a hand-held device. This restriction may be in place to limit the risk of exposure for the applicator, such as skin contact. Broadcast or drop push spreaders also tend to allow you to apply product more evenly over the treatment area. This product also has a pretty low use rate that would be difficult to accomplish evenly using hand-held equipment. We must always recommend that you apply products in accordance with the product label since that is how the product is legally approved for use.
