    We have planted Dwarf Mondo Grass about 3 years ago on one side of our patio where the trees shade to much for St. Augustine Grass. The Dwarf Mondo Grass is growing but very slowly. It has some weeds in it now, and I was wondering if I can fertilize it with Weed and Feed? If anyone has any information on Dwarf Mondo Grass this would be really nice. We are new to this, and we would like to have it spread faster.

    The dwarf variety only gets about 6 inches tall, the regular size plant is 6-12 inches tall.
    You can encourage new thicker growth on the dwarf variety if you mow over it with the mower set on the highest setting before new shoots comes out.
    I don't know about Weed and Feed, but the plants will benefit from once a month liquid fertilizer.
