Jonathan Green Winter Survival Fall Lawn Food is the ideal fall lawn fertilizer to spread anytime from early September through mid-November because air temperatures are cooler and the soil is still warm enough for grass roots to grow deep. Winter Survival provides the nutrients to help boost newly seeded lawns as well as help established lawns grow thicker and greener grass with deeper roots.
This product helps lawns recover from summer stress, feeds grass for up to three months, and can be applied to any type of lawn grass. If Winter Survival is spread early in the fall, a second application the first week of November will safeguard the lawn over the winter resulting in greener grass early next spring.
When to Apply:
- Spread this product a day or two after mowing and when the lawn is dry.
- Apply the same day as seeding or sodding.
- The best time to apply is late summer through late fall depending on the region.
- For damaged lawns apply in early fall then again 6 weeks later, for a thicker, greener lawn.
- Use a rotary or drop lawn spreader.
- Check that the spreader opening at the bottom of the hopper is closed.
- To select the proper spreader setting see the Spreader Settings section in the accordion below.
- Push the lever forward only when ready to spread.
- Apply fertilizer around the perimeter of the lawn to establish a turning area. Then run the spreader back and forth within the area outlined by your first perimeter application. Always allow an overlap to avoid gaps in coverage.
- To avoid staining, sweep any excess fertilizer granules off of hard surfaces and back onto the lawn.
- Irrigate the treated area after application for best results. About 1 ½ inches of water per week is sufficient between rainfall and irrigation but not to the point of run-off.
- Once watered wait a day to mow the lawn, allowing the product time to activate.

I put this down around Halloween. I live in the Northeast. My lawn was green as can be once grass woke up and ground thawed. Barely changed color even during coldest part of winter. Still only one on my block with deep green grass. And a lot of others use landscapers. Recommend this highly in fall.
This is only my second year of using Jonathan Green products and there has been a noticeable difference in my grass. It stayed green all summer and much greener then my neighbors. I used only one application of Winter Survival last year and was very pleased with the result. I plan to apply a second application this year for even better results. I use only Jonathan Green products and follow there schedule for the Northeast. I live In Pennsylvania. I find all there products to be superior to all other brands. A few years back my lawn developed a disease using a different brand. I had to reseed large areas. Now, with Jonathan Green, I no longer have a problem. I’m so evicted by the results. I can’t wait for the next application. A very superior product. Use it.
We have totally to Jonathan Green soil and lawn products. The grass is so much stronger after 2 years of it than it was after 6 years of Scott’s.
So far so good.. springtime will be the best review factor. However I will say my grass is DEFINITELY greener than my neighbors..CONSIDERABLY NOTICEABLY. So much so that I can SEE EVERY SPOT I MISSED DURING APPLICATION. The picture speaks for itself!
Good product grass was real green j
to early to review Winter Survival Fall Fertilizer, 45 Pound. Suggest Spring/Summer 2020 for review.
Lawn looks great after this application. I bought a second one to put down 6 weeks later (now) for the long New England winter.
Won’t know until spring if it really did the intended job.
10 times better than the national brand. JG is now my main source of fertilization and soil treatments
Product was damaged in shipping and combined with another damaged bag by Fed Ex. Who knows if I got the correct weight . Nothing wrong with Jonathan Greene, just the handling during shipping
My yard went from worst to first with Jonathan Greene products all there stuff is #1
I just put this down a week ago and the brown spots in my lawn are turning green! I am very impressed. I live in Washington State. My lawn is about 12,000 square feet and has had some problems with soil compaction for 3 years now.
I am looking to use the enzyme version in early spring.
I am going to try the year round treatment plan.
Although its bagged for Winter and good for multiple grasses during that season, this blend makes for a great Summer fertilizer for a Centipede lawn. Low Nitrogen, no Phosphorus, and a nice amount of special K. Don’t let the Winter label hold you back
Bought this to keep my yard looking healthy and it really works…love the product….my neighbors keep asking how do I keep my yard looking so green in the winter…I say…must be the water on my side of the street…lol…I like to keep them wondering…
Arrived intact no damage
Lawn faired well after a cold and several times snowy winter. Awesome product!
Grass needed fertilized.
I live in a gated/condo situation. I pay to have my lawn cared for but I’m at the mercy of “The Board” and who they choose. They use True Green which is awful. I read all the reviews on this product and I was convinced to try it. It is wonderful! My lawn never has looked this beautiful.
Johnny Greene is always the best
worked ok – we’ll see
Greening up my starving lawn!
the stars speak for them self.
This stuff is amazing. I used it one winter and my grass looked great in the spring. I skipped the next winter and my grass looked terrible in the spring. I used it the third winter and the grass looked great in the spring again. I have used other brands, like Scotts, in the past, but have never had as good results as I did with this stuff. I live in NC and use the Black Beauty grass.
Grass looks great
I’m impressed. My lawn did a pretty good job surviving the winter under a thick layer of snow. Now cones spring and its growing like crazy (and its not even that rainy). I swear I’m mowed the last two weekends. I live in the NE and have fescue (a mix of creeping, tall and fine) and something else which I’ll assume is MAYBE bluegrass.
This is the first time I use this product on my grass so far it looks good I guess I’ll find out more come the spring
This is the best fall fertilizer that I have used. My grass stays green a longtime. It is already winter and it is still green.
This stuff is amazing!! Put down with the grass seed, it has been below freezing off and on for past 2 months and my grass is still green and growing!!
Better than Scott’s. No burning. Moderately quick results. Outstanding color and thickness. My new “go to” lawn fertilizer.
What a great product, this is the best fertilizer for putting your lawn to bed before it goes dormant for the winter. When spring arrives the lawn starts out looking lush and green and ready for the summer. I’ve used other brands in the past but after trying Jonathan Green nothing else comes close, for years I had one of the worst lawns full of weeds and now I have one of the nicest lawns on the block. I highly recommend this product, worth everyenny.
Great product! Go Jonathan Green ! This product is a great product ! Nothing but best !!! Continue with the Great products!
So far so good. The lawn seems greener and the weeds have diminished. Hopefully it holds off the mild California winter.
If you used Jonathan Green Seeds, you must use this fertilizer, it’s the best, is keeping my grass nice and green and protected all winter long. I had bought a different brand from one of the big box stores and it just not do the job.
