I'm in south Arkansas and our temps are lows in the 30's to highs mid 60's. The SA is still green but growth has slowed from none to little. I figure the SA in Florida doesn't go totally dormant but growth slows considerably from what I have read. What if anything do you apply under these conditions?
ArTurf: Wild Violets grow from a nitrogen nodule below soil surface. Most of your supplies will not effect them now since most of the violet is also dormant. Try a little "Old Atrazine" but it probably will not effect them or just wait till spring.
