Winter brings colder temperatures, ice and snow. This is the time of year snow mould or fusarium can present itself and it isn’t until the snow has cleared and spring occurs that you may discover if you have been affected or not. Winter feed is invaluable for the lawn and garden at this time of year to stop nutrient deficiency and to ensure the nutrients are absorbed during the winter months in preparation for the growing season.
