Depends what you are feeding. I use the Fruit Fuel and don’t feed in the month with actual freezing temperatures. The high potassium in it promotes stronger plant cells and subsequently helps protecting the plants from frost damage.

My last application is October. I use urea, potassium sulfate, and grass clippings. I fertilize March- October i.e. 8 months.

I also do my last application in October, it depends of the weather. I noticed that this way my plants are in optimal condition and they do not suffer from frost damage. In spring they look pretty good and I never had cases when they die because of the cold. Also, I use a grass fertilizer, which I got from this website https://www.growgardener.com/5-best-...wns-in-spring/ and it's the best fertilizer for grass in spring. My lawn is always looking magnificent and all my neighbours ask me what do I do for it, the secret is that I use a very good fertilizer.

Joe211,

I live in Baron Rouge and I agree about depending on what fertilizer you use. For exampl I use organic granular fertilizer than I won't go any further then October but if I use liquid fertilizer I can feed them even in November (1st week). Please keep in mind I always try to look at temp forecast. Hope that helps.
