    Malaysian broad Leaf grass --Fertiliser

    Just put some down --its the stuff thats also supposed to grow in the shade
    The sellers are telling me its fertoiliser requirement is just to put Nitrogen on it ---dont believe it surely it must need a balanced fertiliser

    Advice would be appreciated

    Is this as in seed or turf? If turf normal rule of thumb is now to fertilise until 6 weeks, and then a balanced fertiliser. Try now to use a 'weed and feed' type and this may well damage the new turf

    Donald, my advice to you would be to put the grass down, and if it grows, it grows. If it doesn't, it doesn't. You don't want something you have to fuck with all the time, unless of course you own a golf course or a putting green.

    You have to help it establish smitty....for christs sake, it has been butchered, dragged up, rolled up, chucked about, unloaded, reloaded, chucked around some more, walked on and rolled on in the last few days.

    So some little care on what you have just spent some dosh and hard work planting is well worth it.

    Then after 6 weeks, if it does not grow you do what you say.......fok it

    The layers of turf here put down a thin layer of chicken shit before the turf is placed.
    Once it is down and established, I use 15-15-15 fertilizer.
    This grass will remain dominant in shady areas, but, will slowly be edged out in sunny areas by wild grass.
