I plan to use Evergreen Autumn 2 in 1 fertiliser on new turf at the end of September. The sod will be 3 months old by then. I will be using an Evergreen Easy Spreader+ to apply the granules - the instructions say the setting should be 4.5. If I use the 2 pass method, what should the setting be? (ie what is the setting to apply half rate). Is the 2 pass method a good idea (to reduce risk of missed areas where there is no drop under the wheels, conversely to reduce effect of possible overlap). If I use the 2 pass method, should both passes be in the same direction, or at right angles to each other? (ie up and down 1st pass then across at 2nd pass).
Hope you can advise as I don't want to damage the turf and I know you have to be careful with chemical fertilisers.
Many thanks, Fiona
