    Is it too late to apply a weed and feed fertilizer. One of my customers asked for this. The temps have been highs of 65 and lows of 45 for the last week here in the Pacific Northwest.

    I wouldn't do it because most of the weeds will die over the winter when it gets to below freezing, it is a bit late but only because of that reason, otherwise:

    Weed control can be applied within 30 days of seeding as it can and will interfere with grass seed germination, it can also be applied anytime weeds are growing but must be applied while they are growing or it has little to no effect.

    Fertilizer can be applied any time temps are below 90, remembering that if the grass has stopped or slowed considerably, some of the effect may last into spring.

    Now that's just been my experience, it may not be the doctor's terminology.

    Check with people in your area. Pacific Northwest is a long way from Virgina :dizzy: To many variables to consider when appling in differnt regions

    I suggest asking your local licensed professional...
