Autumn lawn fertiliser

Good morning all

I'm looking for recommendations on Autumn lawn fertilisers. The product I have used in previous years is NPK 15-5-20 plus 3% mg. I just feel that this may be a little high on nitrogen for the time of year. The Progreen product is NPK 3-0-12 with some iron and magnesium, does anyone have experience of using this? Any advice and recommendations will be much appreciated. Many thanks Jim

    Most suppliers will provide you with an integrated annual plan if you need one; this will give the right nutrient balance total annually and per season. You can also adjust rates on each lawn depending on if it needs extra or less (eg it's mulched).

    So, speak to suppliers. On here it's Progreen, Agrigem and Greenbest. All will give sound advice and quality products.

    Agree re suppliers.

    Personally, I'd want a reasonable level of P in there. Not a lot, but my highest of the year. If you've seeded recently - even 4 weeks prior to fertilising then the seedlings will have burnt out of reserves by this point. Established plants have less requirement for P.

    Ideally two different products, but maybe I'm just being a little picky - unlikely to have any soil results to go off anyway!

      .....for sure - new seed/ turf needs a higher P - we'd recommend our Amvista 1 - New Grass 6-9-6 but for autumn/ winter on established turf , low N and high K is the priority.

    Thank you everyone for the help and advice, Richard I will be in touch shortly. Jack, not too picky at all, I love all the info!
