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 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?
