    Can I put Ferrous Sulfate down and seed over it or will I have problems with it killing the seeds? Also how long do I have to wait before I put fertilizer down? Last year I put the fertilizer down with the seeds and killed them..

    Use a starter fertilizer if you are seeding. Fertilizer will kill grass seedlings if you put down too much fertilizer. Never exceed 1 lb of nitrogen per 1000 sq ft.

    so when do I apply the ferrous sulfate in the moss ridden areas? before I seed or after? Also does it make sense to reseed the whole lawn every year? Or can I just limit that to the completely bald areas..
