Hi .. I need to over seed my lawn - the lawns are surrounded by trees and fences - which seed would you recommend and how much seed would I need for 350m2?
Many thanks
Hello, we have a south-east facing rear garden with some tree cover. The lawn receives sun until approximately midday when trees then cause shade. Which seen would you recommend to patch bare areas on this lawn? Thanks and regards Tim
hi can you recommend a grass seed for damp shaded areas
Hi. At what date does the shady grass grow. How often to cut? Thanks.
Hi, need about 70m2 but half the lawn is shade and the other not so much (i.e. gets some sun) would you sow the steadfast shade over the whole lot? thanks jon
I have a north face downward sloping garden tat gets some sunlight but nothing intensive as house cast a shadow etc. Just got the shade seed but will this also fro in the sunlight?


What is the germination time for the steadfast shade seed if the conditions are right.

I over seeded lawn approx 12 days ago with the shade seed, I know germination takes around 4 weeks however I’m worried about the intermittent weather changes. We are getting sustained periods of sunshine then heavy rain showers. I would say dryer rather than wet thus far. I’m watering as much as possible but unsure if I’m doing the right thing. The seed looks to good soil contact and I have put a light top dressing on to help things along. Have you got any further advice please?
