What setting should I use for my Scotts Edge Guard Spreader when using Lesco Stater Fertilizer 18-24-12?
Roshawn P on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Every spreader is different and should be calibrated prior to use. With 18-24-12 we recommend spreading at 10-12k sqft per 50lbs.
Should I water it in right after application.?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. You will want to water it in. A good deep watering will move the fertilizer and nutrients into the soil.
Should this product not be used in California? I was planning on using it this Fall
Victor E on Oct 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It depends on what your trying to achieve. This blend is taylored for seed establishment and provides all the nutrients for good seed germination. It's also a great turf builder if your levels are low.

Planting Instructions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
