Abstract/Contents:Explains that "we have no water on our greens. Please advise us re [regarding] dry fertilisation [fertilization], also regarding frost damage prevention." Advises applying a light topdressing immediately before the onset of winter "to counteract drying off as a result of frost," as well as utilizing rich sandy loam soil to potentially promote good growth, fine texture, and attractive color. Provides recommendations for a dry fertilization program, warning "do not on any account apply the fertiliser [fertilizer] to the green whilst the dew is on the grass, otherwise you will scorch and seriously damage the sward."
