    I'm starting next week with my pre. Most have already done it here as.we have had warmer than usual winter but I'm glad I waited! Soon as they started its been cold as chit and have had 2 snows on the ground.... I think mine will be perfect timing.next week.. using stonewall wp. U think its getting to late to add gly to the mix. All dormant Bermuda... I hadn't noticed any coming out yet but I just don't wanna stunt it. Maybe cut my rate in half? Or just use lesco 3 way? I got a question about drive.... at my jd landscapes I bought some but it says use mso with IR... guys there just tries to sell me a non ionic with it... I told em no it calls for.mso. they don't even stock mso! They said all guys there.just use a non ionic.... ?
