November signals the beginning of Florida’s winter

IT’S TIME FOR the most important fertilization of the year. For a green lawn this winter and quick takeoff next spring, feed it now. A combination of weed and feed may be advisable, especially if your lawn is weedy. Winterizer fertilizer would follow two to four weeks later.
