Riggle is right about winterizer being OK now,,, should be fine with .5 lbs/k or even .75 lbs/k... by my experience, winterizer doesn't seem to affect much after the middle of October here, so I try to finish the winterizier by then, so I'll fert now then again in mid October...
You may have more time further South, but I believe that fert is no longer being used by the plant when the soil reaches the cold temps of Fall... New research indicates that fert that lasts into the winter accomplishes nothing, but is wasted, and old research says you do not want fert on too early in the Spring either...

Also we do a lot of weed spraying in October, unless there has been a long dry spell, during leaf cleanup...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
