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.

A bit slower to come up but worth the wait, early days but the makings of a lovely lawn after about 14 days in October (Isle of Wight)

This was used to overseed a lawn which was looking a little thin in places after moss removal. Quite slow to germinate as expected but is now starting to establish itself and helping to make the lawn thicker. Very pleased with the result.
