What is the difference between spring application and weed and feed fall (winter) application using Scotts Turf Builder Weed and Feed 1?

purchased more then needed in spring can I use same for fall applicaton


The Scotts Turf Builder Weed and Feed 1 contains post-emergent herbicide for broadleaf weeds plus a 28-0-3 fertilizer. So the reason this is usually used in spring is because of the high nitrogen content. You would want to be careful about using that much nitrogen on your lawn when it’s very hot, especially with cool-season turfgrasses which don’t need as much nitrogen per year as warm-season grasses. Usually in the fall you would apply pre-emergent herbicide to prevent weeds and possible a winterizer fertilizer that has less nitrogen and more potassium.
