You need to start thinking of fertilizer in term's of pound's of nitrogen applied per 1000 sq. ft. You put down what? 1/2 - 3/4 of a lb. of N per 1000. Shoot for adding 1 lb. of nitrogen per 1000 sq. ft. by mid-November. You can split those application's in two. If you don't have irrigation that's a good idea, fertilizer need's to be watered in. You don't need or want to fertilize again until next April.

The key to growing fescue in the South is cut it high and bag it after the last frost, never cut it when its wet. Keep the leaves off it.

Then every labor day you get to overseed it.
