Hi everyone, can anyone recommend a good drop spreader that doesn't cost the earth?

Think you might struggle to find a mix.

I'm looking for a seed without Rye if possible. The area only gets cut once a week.

Morning all. Can anyone recomend a good seed to overseed a domestic coastal lawn after a heavy scarification in the spring.

Many thanks

Cheers Robbie, will give it a go and the hot water trick sounds a good idea.

Hi Gareth

I used to use the Ferrous Sulphate straight and apply it out of a fertiliser spreader. Not only do you run a high risk of burning the lawn you also get it round you and in flower beds ect, it's also expensive.

If you give the Soluble Ferrous Sulphate a go chances are you won't go back to using the fertiliser spreader method.

I usually mix the stuff up in some hot water (although it's not necessary).

I'm just about the purchase some high iron based mosskiller/lawn tonic. I was going to stock up on lawn sand but with the high postage costs may go for Soluble Ferrous Sulphate this time. I would apply via large nap sack. Do you find any issues with the nozzle blocking up? (I used some rather old stock recently and it had a few small lumpy bits in it!). Is it as quick to apply in liquid form rather than using a granular spreader?

As Robbie said, Soluble Ferrous Sulphate, fast green up with no growth. Also helps in disease resistance but if moss in the lawn it will turn it black.

Hi Mike, a quick and easy boost is to apply some iron.

Another cheap and cheerful way is lawn sand.
