    Will the weed and feed that is in the ground kill new seeds? I want to patch spotty areas in my front lawn. Most of it is fescue however I would like to seed with bermuda in the patchy areas. Will the bermuda seeds get burned up by the fertilizer I just layed 2 weeks ago.

    The fertilizer won't burn it, but you'll need to check the label of your "weed and feed". Most contain a pre-emergent that will prevent germination for up to 8 weeks.

    Thank you. I didn't even think to do that.
