Brunnings Feed n Weed

1.8 from 70 reviews

Works great every time - when you READ and follow the instructions.

Shake product well before using. Lift up leakage tab. Keep bottle level (do not tilt) and connect to the hose. Most people connect the hose and don't read the instructions.

Purchased in June 2019 for $5.00.

Great and cheap product!

Bought this 'Brunnings Feed n Weed' from Bunnings, pour 1/2 the content into a separate medium size pump-sprayer and diluted with water (didn't follow instructions). Sprayed over an area of around 10sq metres, within 2 days the clovers and dandelions started to wither and the other broad-flat leaf weed after 5 days also show sign of deteriorating, btw, the good grass were not affected (unharmed) by the product.
This product is cheap and also works, in fact this is the second time that I've used this product, and it 100% kills the weeds as listed on the pack!

Purchased in April 2019.

Doesn't work

Followed instructions to the tee,but after several attempts no chemical coming through nozzle.in this age of Costco utting,one should grab a bargain when they can,but in this case it's probably worth investing a little bit more to get decent results.stuff inside is probably good but definitely the nozzle design should be improved

Amazing when you don't follow the instructions.

I have a hard gravelly driveway with an uncontrolled broad leaf weed problem and have used Roundup and other herbicides in the past, as well as salt, boiling water and mechanic means.

A couple of days ago I decided to try Brunnings Weed n Feed. The original 3.5L Brunnings bottle was useless and wouldn't work when I attached the hose, so I cut the top off the bottle and emptied it neat (undiluted) into a hand sprayer. NB: Always wear rubber gloves when handling any chemicals.

I then sprayed a test area of 10 square metres and sprayed an equal sized area with Roundup for control purposes.

Well, talk about effective! 2 days later the area sprayed with neat Feed n Weed was dead, apart from some small tufts of grass which I can remove manually. Feed n Weed is only useful for broad leaf plants.

The Roundup patch...... Well nothing has happened yet, but I expect it to be similarly dead within a week, and Roundup will also kill any grass tufts.

So, in a nutshell, neat Brunnings Feed and Weed out-performs Roundup on broad leaf weeds. No more use of potentially carcinogenic chemicals and a big saving at the same time.

The badly designed container leaves a lot to be desired, but the contents are brilliant.

Rubbish product

I literally spent 30 minutes watering weed and then realised that the weed will grow and shine more because I have been just watering them without the chemicals. Just wasted my time and water. This product doesn’t work no matter how hard you try it’s just doesn’t work. I am very disappointed with Bunnings

Absolute travesty that anything designed this poorly is allowed to be sold.

Simply put doesn't work, the liquid will not come out of the container. Have re-read the instructions to make sure I am using it correctly and the Brunnings website has absolutely no real trouble shooting steps. Any assistance that I've obtained is from reading what others have done that is written on product review. From what I gather it looks like a new design feed top will hit the market soon but I won't support such a horrible company that must know thay are selling a very flawed product. In closing I do take some comfort that Brunnings don't build commercial airliners as the death toll would be staggering. Still. .the plane would have to get of the ground first, so maybe not.

Excellent product!

Be mindful all the old bad reviews refer to an old design with internal issues. Worked perfectly for us here in Tassie on various broadleaf weeds, sprays and mixes really well and very effective. Good for a whole yard certainly, cost us $8 at a cheapy store. Would highly recommended.

Agreed that this doesn't work

Don't waste your money,. I agree with the other reviewers on this product. You'll attach your hose and spray then realise that the chemical stuff is not being drawn up into the water stream and simply end up watering the garden. Honestly this is such a disappointment Try another brand instead.

Brunnings Extra Strength Feed 'n' Weed 2.8 Litre

This product is absolutely crap i ended up with more liquid in the bottle than i started with does not work what so ever biggest waste of money ever. Very disappointed with this product should be taken of the market.
Spent ages watering my lawn to finally work out it wasn't working, as we are on tank water i was devastated that i had wasted all that water for nothing.

The model doesn't work

I was just watering the lawn for 10 minutes as the nozzle was not extracting the chemical. I followed the three step instructions check for blockages checked that the holes required piercing were but no luck. I have used other brands that successfully just this one is garbage. The hose connector keeps coming off as well. Truly a WOFTAM.

Check the inside tube first

Had a bit of trouble getting product to mix with the water at first but soon realised the tube inside had fallen off. Once reconnect worked perfectly. No problem. More than enough to do entire yard. Would rather get more product for my money than a fancy nosel. Check the tube inside people before you just get angry and give up.

Manufacturer Should be Ashamed

The nozzle design I'm sure made a lot of sense to the engineer who designed it and the person in charge that realized it would be cheaper, but it's just not made clear to the consumer.

The instructions describe the 3 holes, but then references a "flow control", with no capitalisation or diagram to show what that is. When there are 3 holes to choose from and a warning that says not to let the liquid contact the skin, I'm left wondering how to safely use this thing.

Poor instructions

I have also bought this product from Bunnings recently even though it has been written as discontinued. I'm glad I'm not the only one having trouble getting it to work. I think more sprayed over my gloves then on the lawn. Doesn't connect well to hoses. Would be helpful to have pictures included with instructions.

Just bought one yesterday even though Bunnings said it is discontinued

Bought this yesterday and instructions to use is hopeless. All I did was just pierced the middle hole. When ready to feed, just block the side hole. It worked for me.
If you want to adjust the suction. Make a very small hole on the side hole..if the hole is too big, there will be no suction then you will have to control suction by blocking and releasing your finger. You could use the supplied plug to plug the side hole and control the flow by using the hole beside the middle one.

New Hose On Adaptor

Hi all, I've been told through the grapevine that after all of the customer issues, Brunnings is now releasing a new hose-on nozzle for their products. I was lucky enough to test of of these and the nozzle works wonderfully and is so much better than what they had. Keep your eyes peeled for these and thank you Brunnings for finally listening to us!

Date PurchasedJan 2017

The nozzle is 10000% useless. Horrible. Waste of money and time in the sun!

Whoever designed this ought to resign immediately. The mechanism is completely 10000000% hopeless. Useless. An insult to take our money! I searched their website and youtube for some sanity, but nothing available. Disgraceful that a company can sell a product before testing it in the hands of average consumers. Woo

Scientific Method

I was unsure if this product would work so I applied it to half my lawn. The results were spectacular and results were visible within a few days so of course I did the other half. great product. Also I discovered that if you want to use the product in a spray bottle the ratio is 20:1. (20 water 1 Feed and Kill).

Date PurchasedDec 2016

Killer Killer

I also gave up with the sprayer, instead use a seperate hand spray bottle.
Buy a 5$ hand held spray bottle, pour your weed-n-feed into the sprayer, put it aside while you water the lawn in the normal way then when the lawn has had a good soaking and is still wet, walk over the lawn applying the weed-n-feed...... their hose adapter is just rubbish.

Questions & Answers

when is the best time to use Brunnings Weed n Feed in winter in Melbourne. Is August ok?
No answers

how long after spraying weed and feed can chickens go on the grass
1 answer
After spraying 'Weed n Feed' on the grass, leave it for 7 days, then mow it before you put livestock on the treated area. For future reference, spray half the lawn and fence off if possible. The chickens can spend 7 days on the untreated area, then move the chickens to the treated area, and spray the untreated area. Otherwise just lock the chickens up for 7 days and do the whole area. Remember to mow it after the 7 days have passed.

Can it put on grass that hasn't been mowed for 2 weeks?
1 answer
If it’s growing strongly it might become very thick & difficult to cut after being fed. You could mow it, wait a week & then apply weed &feed then wait another week before mowing. I recommend the 1 week after & 1 week before mowing rule.
