Product Questions

Is there anything to gain or anything wrong with putting more seed down than is recommended?
Question by: Martyn on 13 Apr 2018, 20:56
Adding too much seed can cause competition amongst the new grass and it is also less economical however it really depends how much more you add!
Answer by: Chris McIlroy on 17 Apr 2018, 14:36
Good Morning, Is it ok to put a little top soil on top of the seeds when doing patch up bits?
Question by: Monika Nye on 27 Jul 2022, 10:03
Thanks for getting in touch!

Yes, it is! As long as it isn't too deep, it works great - around the size of a stack of 2-3 pound coins is the perfect depth!
Answer by: Ben Agnew on 27 Jul 2022, 10:54
Hi,
After I’ve put my new seed in/on the soil, is it ok to use a fleece to cover the area to protect it from the birds eating the seed and falling leaves?
Question by: Russell Pickering on 4 Jun 2022, 12:46
Hi Russell, thank you for your question.

Yes, you could cover your newly seeded lawn with grass seed netting.

Would it be OK to sow during mid October?
Question by: John Morley on 24 Sept 2023, 17:13
Thank you for your enquiry.

Mid October is a little late in the sowing calendar and normally the ideal times for sowing are from March - September. Ideally temperatures for germination need to be 8-10 degrees Celsius, if you have these sort of temperatures consistently for 2 weeks then the seeds should germinate. If you feel that the weather is not guaranteed or it is too cold in your part of the country then I would suggest that you delay sowing until Spring.

Have i sowed the seeds too late?
I put the seed down about a week or so ago and have been watering it frequently.
I am concerned that the hot weather we have had for the last week has had an impact on the seeds not germinating as can’t see any evidence of growth.
Have I put the seed down too late in the year?
Has the long hot days killed the seed?
What can I do to fix patchy lawn?
Thanks
Ian
Question by: Ian Perkins on 5 Jun 2021, 09:55
Hi Ian

There is no need to be concerned, the grass sowing season is generally from March - September. If you only seeded a week ago, then it is still quite early and there is plenty of time for the grass to grow. As long as you keep the area well watered and there is ample sunlight then there should be no issues. Just remember to water in the evenings when temperatures are cooler.
