    Would this be suitable for bamboo (a type of grass)?

      On the pack it says suitable for all lawn types so worth a try

        Thanks Chum :) I wonder if it’s better than just getting mushroom compost. Guess I’ll guve it a crack.

      Bamboo requires fertilizers high in nitrogen and most lawn fertilizers fit the bill :-)

      I got the Aldi 10kg for $10 last week. Agter the rain grass went from yellow to green. Put a bit too much into a pot plant and it died.

    I've just been doing Seasol and PowerFeed every couple of weeks. Thoughts on that vs a slow release fertilizer like this??

    • +2 votes

      i think they work differently but don't ask me the science behind it.

    • +2 votes

      Seasol is great for root development through enriching soil. It get all the bugs and worms working and will effectively promote growth. A fertilizer like this should feed the roots to push growth. That's about all I know haha! I use both :)

    how would this compare to the Hortico 15kg Organic Lawn Fertiliser ?

    Similar coverage, but 11kg more and slightly cheaper?

    • +3 votes

      In my experience, Munns is the best and Scotts comes second. While Hortico is cheaper for most other applications like weed killer etc, in fertiliser I find them lacking.

      Get the Munns golf green green , it has provided me the best results for Buffalo ( I will be trying this as well, so I'll give an update for the next spring :D )

      •  

        So you use the golf green on buffalo, and not the 'buffalo booster'?

        • +4 votes

          I use golf course green and the results are fantastic, my neighbour and I have front lawns without a border and we usually mow each other’s lawn alternate fortnight’s, as an experiment we used golf course green only on mine and the results were staggering, mine is lush and green while he still has winter yellow patches, going to get another bag to do his over the weekend

      Some people like their lawn lush and green so they can mow it every weekend so every strand is evenly matched.
      I'm not one of those people though.

    I love these stuff. I send these to my parents house in Sri Lanka and it really does wonders on their lawn which they take care religiously.

      WTF I'll bet that raises eyebrows at customs!

      In those tropical country where annual rainfall is over 1000mm fertiliser is waste of money, just need good eye to keep out all the weeds

        Buffalo lawn doesn't really need much care but we have a special lawn type which needs daily care when its not raining for few days

      It's good in places where there's alot of rain.

        We have dry spells too. This pic was taken in a morning when it hasn't rained in 1-2 months. https://i.imgur.com/tAqkd5U.jpg

        All other lawns are brown and patchy while our lawn which was fertilised with scotts, was so green that it looks like it has been photoshopped.

          That is one beautiful Sri Lankan lawn. Why can't your parents buy this stuff over there?

            @Meconium: Thanks and yeah we get compliments from everyone and yes we have a coconut tree in the garden lol. Scotts isn't available in my country. And we don't get variety of fertilisers like they have here. Most of the fertilisers are designed for buffalo lawns because 95% lawns there are buffalo. And its much easier and kinda cheap to send stuff from here using cargo services.

    My uncle hasn't taken care of his garden for years, so it's patchy and full of weeds, is this all I need to start fixing it, besides killing the weeds of course? Or do I need grass seeds as well?

        Quick clarification;

        You say mow low, spray as directed.

        But the packages always say do not mow for 7 days either side of application.

        Are you applying straight after mowing, or mowing it low and then applying it a week later?

        • +1 vote

          applying a week later as directed is best to keep the grass safe, that's why I recommend mowing low.

      I purchased a Fiskars pole, stand on type, imported dandelion weeder at Bunnings a few weeks back for about $70 (see below). Check it out next time you visit. (Whilst standing just push pointy clamp in weed, jiggle, step on horizontal base bit, withdraw weeder, pull side handle up to release weed where you want … ). I have had 3 back operations so cannot do the bending over and weeding tasks and hate spraying chemicals too, but found this easy for me. Mother's 1/4 acre propery was full of dinner plate sized weeds but "got" most of them easily enough with this within a few hours. Keep it handy as so tempting to use (neighbours looked on, amused or enviously, as their gardens chockers with them). Even son (20s) has had a bit of fun with it and I did not even ask him to! Happily filled the large "green" bin with the blighters. Pity no guinea pigs any more as they simply love those dandelion weeds.

      Found the Fiskars weeder here. We only step on it when it is horizontal so pic misleading :

    With all the rain we've been getting in Sydney, the garden is getting out of control with weeds and steroid growth, fertiliser is the last thing I need! But good deal.

    This is a premium product for one time application over 3-4 months, at this price not a bad buy.

    Otherwise alternative;
    https://www.bunnings.com.au/amgrow-20kg-shirleys-no17-lawn-food_p301036

    Depending on the size of the lawn, this amount would last at least a year.
    Slightly less concentrated but good value all the time, needs slightly more regular application (2-3 months) but I think slow release is a bit of meh/bs anyway.

    Organic is a more natural alternative and improves soil quality however additional smell included.

      Can you fix the link to that product? Just lands on the Bunnings home page cheers!

    Hi all. Is it suitable for dying lawn or to re-grow grass? Thanks
