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.

Over-seeding an exciting lawn. It’s too early to tell about quality of lawn.

For my Croquet lawn this works well. However the finer strands allow more weeds! Constant vigilance required.

We use this during, but mainly, at the end of our bowling season, before winter sets in, as part of our scarifying and fertilier regime.
This then has time to establish before the ravages of winter sets in

Used this seed all season, makes a lovely thick top grade lawn. All you have to do is have a little patience for it to show any sign of germinating

Beautiful grass. I do not want any rye grass, so I can easily spot any non fine-bladed invader and eradicate.

Excellent quality grass seed. It takes a while to germinate, but once it's on its way, it grows very evenly into a super lawn. I would recommend this grass seed to anyone who want a beautiful top quality fine lawn.

The lawn seed has taken very well and I now have a much thicker and better lawn. Excellent quality product that I would happily recommend to others to buy, and in fact have!

Germination was slower that expected and quite a lot of seeded patches in my lawn didn't take at all. I have now re-ordered and will be attempting to re-seed the patches for a second time this weekend. The quality of the grass, from the seed that did take, is brilliant!

Excellent product. Ideally you need to allow a year to really see the benefits of sowing this grass seed.

Used for over seeding spring/autumn so it is difficult to assess the effect or to distinguish the benefits from other attention given to the grass and lawns.

I've used this for overseeding. Not easy to tell how it's doing, only used it two weeks ago and any germination is lurking within what was already there. Maybe next spring it'll be looking thicker (I hope).
