 Their lawn will take up to 6 weeks to fully establish

To keep the lawn healthy, green and disease / weed free, recommend that your client regularly fertilises the lawn

Product Questions

Hi,
How early in the spring can I sow this grass? We are in Cornwall so it is relatively mild.
Thanks

Hi Darryl

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.
