  1. Surely there must be more. Will one application of corn gluten in the
    spring feed the grass until it goes dormant again?

  3. Doug – Youtube does not allow url posting on links. And I tend to delete
    promotional postings on my channel because of all the spammers allowing it
    attracts. Try the consumer watchdog sites, Consumer Reports etc. You might
    try a old forum called Daves Garden. There were a lot of reviews up there
    on companies at one point but not sure about national lawn firms. Having
    said that – best I can do and unfortunately I will have to delete anything
    that has to come beyond this one.

  5. Pretty good, But for anyone reading that lives in the south, I think It
    should be made clear that certain grass types like the Hybrid Bermuda
    varieties are the opposite when it comes to mowing. You want Hybrid Bermuda
    at 3/4 inch or half inch or even shorter depending on what variety. Hybrid
    Bermuda takes on a prostrate growing habit when mowed correctly and that
    will choke out weeds on a Bermuda lawn. Someone I know had there Hybrid @ 3
    inches and the weeds took over 80% of the lawn.

  8. Doug, if corn gluten prevents seeds from germinating, how does the grass
    seed sprout? Or does corn gluten stay effective for only a certain length
    of time? (In which case, will I have dandelions sprouting by mid-summer??)
    I used corn gluten for the first time this past spring, and I must say it
    does seem to be working. I’ll raise my mower blades and do the grass seed
    thing this fall and see how it goes. Thanks for all your good advice!
