How soon to treat clover after seeding?

    A bit of white clover is starting to invade a new lawn I seeded.

    I killed all of the existing lawn, weeds, and clover before sod cutting.

    Its been about 6 weeks now and the lawn has come in great, but clover is starting to show up again.

    How soon can I treat the clover without harming the new turf? I usually spray clover, is there a granular weed n' feed that takes care of clover?

    Any other advice?

    It depends on the product you are using but typically speaking it is the second or third mowing after the reseeding. Some products will list a time frame of 4 to 6 weeks. Look on the herbicide label and it will be able to tell you all of the information.
