The Seeding Secret:

There are many 'miracle' patch, repair and seed packs that claim to germinate and grow quicker than the next! The secret - a bit of fertiliser! So, for new lawns or patching sow your seed between April and September, have the sprinkler ready if it doesn't rain and feed your new seedlings with a STARTER feed to speed establishment and bring your new lawn into use sooner. For established lawns when overseeding use a seasonal fertiliser; the 'sandy soil' version is the best for this situation as it contains a broader range of nutrients compared to the 'clay soil' version thus looking after both your existing grass and the new seedlings better.

Once germinated it doesn’t take long to grow. Excellent seed with lush green blades.
Looking forward to over seeding in the spring with this. Superb product.

This is the second year in which I have overseeded with the Classic grass seed. This is doing a good job in rejuvenating my lawns and gradually improving the mix of grass species. It gives a really nice looking lawn which is still reasonably hard wearing.

Fast delivery. Clear and easy instructions. New grass grew within 2 or 3 weeks and was of exceptional fine quality, rich in depth and colour.
I made sure the ground was soft enough for the seed to germinate and watered regularly as it was particularly hot and sunny at the time. The results were amazing. The new grass is of such exceptional quality, rich and lush in depth and colour. Good for a new lawn or just filling in bare patches. Highly recommend

I marked out the lawn into metre sections to ensure even spread and found the quantity supplied (400 sq m) fine. I used ice cream containers to split out the seed and found this an easy way to prevent using too much seed. Excellent product which has germinated well partly due to the recent rain that we have been experiencing. Neighbours have commented on how well it has germinated on sections where bare sections had been due to leveling sunken areas. Would recommend product and better value than garden centres.

Very satisfied with results so far.
