Snuddenstan: I was glad to come across your posting on 06-20-2009 regarding Scotts Starter Fert wth CG control. I have reseeded and applied the fert last week to my 22,500 ft yard. At the same time, I conducted an indoor experiment with 3 pots of soil seeded as follows: 1. broadcast 2. slit seeded 3. slit seeded + starter fert with CG control (represents what in my yard) To my surprise and frustration, pots 1 and 2 have both germinated and growing rapidly. Pot 3 only has a few strands. Your post is encouraging because I am really starting to think that the Scott's product has inhibited the seeds from germinating.
