best feed for a new lawn

Posted: 06/07/2013 at 07:02

thanks all, seed was sown in may I put  a good lawn fertiliser down before the seed it came through lovely and green, now it has started to yellow a bit.  I did read that i can not use 4 in 1 on new grass, weeds are not a problem, as for the water Fred I do not think that is the answer it does get well watered. Verdun have I not to feed it till it is 6 months old?

Thank you Dove, just picked one the beans are about 2mm small so I will try them cooked in the pods.  The variety is Aquadulce Vicia faba.  The parsley sauce sounds good will try that as well.

This is my first time growing broad beans, I have a few that are about 4 in long, pod feels like there is beans inside, they were planted in april, is that about the size for picking.  Going to have them if they are ready with sea bass what's the best way to cook them.  thanks

I have tried filling the bath to clean pots but I just end up with a sore back. I love weeding with a hoe.
