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 over seeding use the appropriate seasonal fertiliser; the 'sandy soil' version is the best for new grass even if you have clay soil.

Grows well in conditions described, looks good. Not the fastest to germinate but now well established where used. Now back for a second bag of seed 2 years later (different area).

Product used for managing moss and reseeding problem lawn. So far reseeding is very promising and moss control has been effective.

Not sure - this is the second lawn seed mix that I've purchased - last years didn't seem to take and so I've tried this shady seed so will be interested to see what happens....!

Quality seed. Fast to germinate and looks great. Has survived moderate shade so far. Keep it longer though as I have made the mistake of trying to go too short which made the grass thin out. You'll probably have to reapply each year to certain areas if very shady over winter.

Our garden is particularly damp and north facing, hence the Shadygreen seeds is ideally suited. Seed supplied in strong sack so ideal for storage for use later in the season.

This has sprouted in 3-4 weeks after applying in late September in quite heavy shade. Previous attempts failed. My gardner said it wouldn't happen, well done me and Lawnsmith. Used with Starter Fertiliser. Very impressed.

I have lots of new shoots on my shady clay soil for the first time in years, having used off the shelf seed in the past its died and I still have patchy bear grass. Glad I came across this website, used a the advice and info and applied it to my lawn, happy lawn, beautiful and green as I have used the clay soil fertiliser with it.

I used this product on areas of my lawn that were shaded by bushes and don't get much sunlight. The grass is currently growing thick and green. I recommend this product.

Good results obtained, subject to above constraints, lots of fir trees(Scottish Pine) Chestnuts, and shrubs around borders heave debris with every season and wind which presents a sizeable task on c1/4 acre area.
