I could be mistaken but it looks like the 2 more expensive ones are specifically for Fall use with 1% iron content. Would the Fall-specific ones still work now (Spring), or would it be suggested to perhaps go with the other non-Fall one? I'm looking at overseeding my postage stamp of a lawn in front of my townhouse soon and any suggestions by someone more knowledgeable on the topic than me would be most appreciated. TIA

Scotts Spring Fertilizer recommendations are:
https://www.scotts.com/en-ca/products/l ... eed-spring

Basically fertilizer that is 32-0-4. This is identical to the third one on sale at Lowes.

Here's a breakdown of what it means: https://www.garden-counselor-lawn-care. ... mbers.html

Nitrogen is the most important, but also the one you get by mulching your grass onto your lawn. Therefore, I would not hesitate to use a fall fertilizer on your lawn since it will get ample nitrogen from the grass clippings. The ones that are high in potassium are good to prepare the lawn for the harsh winter - so will not hurt your lawn (just not as needed). Feel free to buy any of the three with the last one being the best for spring and the first two best for the fall. If you are only buying one (for both spring and fall) buy one of the first two as the fall feeding is much more important.

Picked this up a few months ago on clearance. Stock varies from store to store.

Can you explain why you would not recommend this for spring application?

I think of it this way - it is better to put Fall fertilizer in the Spring
than not putting any fertilizer

This will be fine for spring. But these fertilizer granules are HUGE, you have to be careful with your spreader.
Caused nitrogen burn on my lawn (around bends and edges, where it gathered).
Iron gives grass a darker green color.
