Evergreen Complete 4 in 1 Lawn Care Bag 320m2 - 12.6kg £10 @ Wickes (Instore Nationwide))

Found 30th Mar
Noticed this in clearance whilst browsing the 15% offerings.

Previously purchased the amazon deal at £7.50 for 7kg bag which was a good deal, this would be another decent deal if you can get hold of it. It's instore (nationwide) only, plenty of stock near me so hopefully helps someone out.

Don't think you'd get the 15% on top as you can't reserve/collect but could always ask instore. Regardless, worth a try.

Problem with these products is that they are sold as a 'quick fix' and for lawns there really is no such thing, and trying to do this by hand or even a drop spreader will usually result in burning the lawn and doing more damage, especially as people naturally think, oh I'll give that area abit extra because of the weeds or moss, with this LESS IS MORE. professional fertiliser works around 20 to 25 grams per sqm, and that is what we stick to, don't over do it.

Thing with moss is trying to get rid of the conditions it likes to grow in, treating for it now is a bit late, best to use an iron based liquid feed (cheap as chips and won't burn lawns) in the autumn and winter to prevent it from spreading so much. If it's an old and spongey lawn then you probably need to scarify it, of it's compact then aerate it, shadey then not a massive amount you can do about that if it due to the house or something.

Personally if you have no clue, I'd get a free survey from a lawn care specialist (Google for your nearest one) and see what they say, often it's not that expensive but it will at least give you an idea of what you need to do.

Generally a fool proof method of getting a bad lawn back to a nice one is to scarify, aerate, over seed and top dress. This will add fresh healthy shoots to the existing lawn after you've removed all the thatch and rubbish. Don't mow for around 4 to 6 weeks and make sure you water every day unless you have rainfall for at least 2 weeks.

Some of the most common mistakes I see people make

Scarify and don't feed after, lawn won't recover and moss just fills the spaces in again.

LAWNS CUT TOO SHORT! always cut no less than an inch, scalping lawns does the grass no good and will encourage moss and weeds, cut higher and as frequently as possible

Over feeding and burning lawns

Thinking 1 treatment will fix it, it's an on going plan to keep lawns their best

All in one products are not really the way to go, you want separate fertiliser, weedkill and moss control. You do t really want to be applying iron in summer, nor nitrogen in autumn. All in one products are very rarely better for anything in life! However it will cost much more than this stuff so depends which way you want to go.


As I said, for this brand product this is a cheap deal, but just be careful if you don't know what you are doing

Thank you @antispam246 that's a fab price
Great Deal, I'll be off to Wickes tomorrow to buy a couple of these, Cheers.
Great product? Ye right, cheaply manufactured rubbish that most people will do more harm than good. However it's a hell of a lot of area to cover for the money!
Is this their old formula i.e non organic ?
does this product scorch the lawn?

does this product scorch the lawn?


Any fertiliser applied incorrectly will scorch a lawn, even non scorch fertiliser

Is this their old formula i.e non organic ?


I'm not totally familiar with their range, but if it has a weedkiller in it, I can't see how it can be organic, the one listed is not, unless there is a hidden rabbit in the bag
I’ve used this for years, works great but don’t get carried away and chuck loads down as you’ll be cutting your grass weekly, it’s like cat nip to grass!

What moss killer do you recommend prior to scarification?
I'd just use a iron sulphate based powder that you mix into water, give the grass a nice dark green colour and sends the moss black. However I woukdnt worry too much about doing it before, your only going to be taking it out when you rake/scarify it. Put it down afterwards as once it's raked over you will reveal the underlying moss which woukdnt have been treated of done before, amd will also help recovery.

Also don't go mad scarifying it, once is enough, twice if need be, I hear people saying I kept bringing more and more stuff up, but that 'stuff' will start being more grass and roots etc and then wonder why it doesn't recover
Thanks for the advice much app
