Product Questions

At what time of year/temperatures can I oversees with restore seed
Question by: Steve Maltby on 4 Mar 2021, 09:24
Hi Steve

The grass sowing season is generally from March - September. You can confidently sow grass seed when temperatures are 8-10 degrees and above consistently for at least two weeks with no adverse weather conditions forecast. Always consult a two week forecast prior to sowing.

We have a puppy who has burnt patches into our lawn, I need to repair these but also want it to be strong for it’s high use. Do I get this or the superstar as I am confused which would be best?
Question by: dean clarkson on 22 Mar 2021, 21:57
Hi Dean

Whilst this is a great mix for those gardens that find themselves continuing to need overseeded I'm not sure it will withstand the dog urine. You are better with a more hardwearing mix such as FAMILY: Kids & Pets. This will create a hardwearing, durable lawn but it won't be completely tolerant to the dog urine. We actually have a blog on this in our Help & Advice section which you may find helpful.

Last year I over-seeded with so called ‘drought resistant’ lawn seed after scarify. I think i over-seeded and it became very thatchy. So if I scarify this month, would your self repair seed be OK? Does it have its own fertiliser or would i need to fertilise? If yes, what fertiliser would you recommend? Thanks
Question by: Charmaine on 27 Sept 2021, 14:15
Hi Charmaine, we do not have a grass seed that has it's own fertiliser and you would need to apply this prior to sowing. You might want to consider our QUICK RELEASE: Pre-Seed Fertiliser. It provides the soil and seed with all the nutrients they need. It helps to create a great foundation for sowing new seed whilst strengthening existing grass. It will also help increase germination and establishing a strong root system. You should mow the lawn before applying it - the recommended spreading rate is 70g per m2. It is a granular fertiliser so will need to be watered in after it is applied. Once the granules are dissolved you are safe to seed.

My front lawn is under trees. Not necessarily overshadowed by trees now we have cut back. But the area in front of where overhang was is more weeds than grass, and it’s matted. Would like to send you a pic. I want to know what to treat it with to get grass back to match rest of the fro t of my property.
