Grass seed needs to be planted in season as germination is often dependent on soil temperature. It is not recommended that any type of grass seed be planted mid-summer or mid-winter. Check sowing instructions before selecting.
•    Always cultivate existing ground first by removing vegetation and roughening ground. Grass seed will not establish successfully if planted straight over existing turf.
•    Apply 10mm of Organic Top Dress to provide a non-crusting, moist seed bed.
•    Spread seed according to supplier instructions. Do not over apply.
•    Keep area watered until seed establishes.



Seed can be hard to germinate. When selecting seed consider quality and the germination % rate. Couch and kikuyu in particular can have low germination rates and be slow to strike.
