How Can I Make Centipede Grass Plugs Spread Faster? 

Q: How can I make centipede grass plugs spread faster? 

A: Centipede grass does not grow very rapidly. All warm season grasses slow down in September, so nothing can be done now. Next year, in both early May and early July apply fertilizer like 15-0-15 or 16-4-8 at a rate of six pounds per thousand square feet.
