Your lawns best friend!
By applying Pre-Seed Fertiliser, 3 to 5 days before sowing grass seed or laying turf, will provide the soil with the essential nutrients allowing the seedlings/turf to establish strong roots to ensure your lawn gets off to the best possible start. The mini granules promote even distribution of nutrients over your lawn.
Please note if the fertiliser is applied during very hot temperatures, it can scorch your grass. We recommend applying Pre-Seed Fertiliser on a cool evening or when it is overcast.
Why Choose Ivisons Pre Seed Fertiliser?
✔ 6% Nitrogen
✔ 9% Phosphorus
✔ 6% Potassium
More About The Mixture:
This phosphate-rich fertiliser will provide your seedbed with the best foundation for establishing new seedlings as phosphorus aids healthy grass roots and shoots. The potassium content will help the grass become strong and hardy, fighting off any diseases that seedlings are susceptible to. The nitrogen will give your lawn the desired rich green look we all desire.
This fertiliser is made up of homogenous granules. This means that each granule has the same nutrient analysis to ensure an even spread of nutrients across the sown area. With Cheaper blended fertilisers, the analysis is represented in the bag rather than each granular, which leads to an uneven spread of nutrients. Using a Blended fertiliser can lead to a patchy lawn, parts of your lawn may grow quicker than others and the colour of the grass may differ throughout.
When To Use Pre-Seed Fertiliser:
Without carrying out a full soil analysis, it is very difficult to know exactly which nutrients your lawn requires. Our Pre-Seed Fertiliser contains appropriate quantities of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium that will nourish low nutrient soil to aid germination.
It is best to use Pre-Seed Fertiliser 3 – 5 days before sowing grass seed or laying turf. It can also be used as a lawn tonic to give your lawn a boost throughout the growing season.
How To Apply
- Apply our fertiliser at the recommended rate by hand (remember to wear a glove!) or by using a spreader.
- Water the fertiliser in until it dissolves, the ground must be free from frost, so they don’t freeze.
- Keep children and pets off the lawn until the granules have dissolved. The granules should dissolve within 24 hours.
- Remove or clean the footwear you were wearing during application to avoid damaging surrounding areas such as patios.
