    Does the OP have K31 now? If so, get rid of that junk NOW.

    Pix of Black Beauty, or any other "NEW" variety in various areas around the country, with a brief description of the winter would be most informative all the way around... :)

    As one of the respondents to this thread I can tell you that my (mostly) BB lawn is just coming out of winter dormancy and all is well so far. :)

    This past fall and winter were quite hard on things in general, given that Hurricane Sandy w/ 6" of rain was followed up by a Nor'Easter w/ 8" of snow just 7 days later. :hammerhead:

    The 12 days without utility power sorta sucked, as did cutting up perfect good trees that were now horizontal -- but nothing hit the house so I can't really complain.

    Spring this year is a bit later as seasonal temperatures have been low -- soil temps are just reaching 50'F now. Two weeks ago put down pre-em (Anderson's TEAM-based CG preventer, as CG is usually the biggest problem around these parts). Tonight I'll apply fert, Anderson's 24-0-11.
