    Hi there, I laid a new lawn about a month ago (No. 2 seed & 18:6:12 fertilizer). It seems to be thriving in most parts of the garden but not growing at all in others, any idea what the problem could be? I've tried adding more seed/fertilizer to the areas where there is no growth but no success yet.
    Also, there seems to be a lot of weeds coming up with the new grass, is it too early to apply a weedkiller or should I wait until the grass is more established?
    Finally, pending the sorting out of these problems, when should I be looking at giving it it's first cut?
