Snowdrops in a Lawn

I have a small lawn which is full of Snowdrops when they have disappeared I also have weeds. Can I use weed and feed or something like it after the Snowdrops have become dormant or will it kill them as well.

    I wouldn't bet on it, but good luck with the trying.  Maybe leave it and all the other flowers alone and have a flower filled lawn?  We leave everything, ( except dandelions) including ranunculus,clover, daisies, vioas, creeping geranium, speedwell  etc. in ours, cut it as usual - not very frequently or dreadfully short - more to do with the poor condition of the soil rather than the flowers - the result is gorgeous.  The poor condition is due to large and very numerous tree roots about which nothing can be done. Everyone loves it.  However, if a green sward is your dream, then just be aware that ranunculus can be the devils own job to get rid of.
