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.

I used the product for overseeding.

After 2 weeks there has been little evidence of germination despite perfect conditions

Would not recommend based on results so far
