Scatter by hand. Then mow with the collector box off until it has been well washed in by the rain.

Scattered the fertiliser by hand at rate of 30/35g per metre over fairly small area 25m2, having previously mown, forked and watered the lawn. Some good green growth visible after 10 days but more noticeable after 2 weeks. For first 3 days i watered the lawn for about 15 mins each evening then the rainy weather set in for a week or so.

This fertiliser works well on my lawn which has extremely Sandy soil. It keeps the grass green and healthy through spring and summer with just one application.
