What happens if weed and feed is not watered in?
Can you please clarify something for me? I purchased a weed and feed product whose package instructs me to water it in shortly after application. I have experienced issues with many weed and feed products over the years, despite following the directions to the letter.

Can you clarify the issue of irrigation following application? – Shannon McNaughton When applying pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or fertilizers, you should always adhere to the label’s instructions.
If the product’s label specifies that it should be diluted with water, you must do so. Typically, it indicates that the active substance is absorbed by the roots.
