I believe I have a bad case of Red Thread in my lawn, what is the best remedy weed and feed or kill off the complete lawn and re-seed ??
RHS recomend application of nitrogen, such as ammonium sulphate, but not this late in the season, as it induces soft growth susceptible to snow mould.
I would wait until next spring and then weed and feed.
see this site for more info.
Thank you for all your advice about red thread and the address for the RHS website.
I will now put your comments into action and hopefully get our beautiful lawn looking lush and green again.
Before you use Wed and Feed, look it up on the Internet. I was shocked at how poisonous it is to pets and wildlife. I think the box should carry a better warning and I would welcome an item about it on Gardener's world. I am only going to use it on small areas at a time, which I can cover with chicken wire and netting to stop birds landing on it. I don't know what it does to worms.
