How to use

Create a new lawn or fill in a bare patch

1. Rake
  • Remove all weeds and stones.
  • Turn the soil over to a depth of 15-22cm (6-9in).
  • Level and firm by either treading or using a roller.
2. Shake
  • Shake box to re-mix seed.
  • You need 30g per square meter (1oz/sq.yd). For a visual guide, apply to a measured area first.
  • Create a criss-cross pattern, by sowing half the seed from left to right and the rest from top to bottom.
  • Gently rake in, then tread or roll seed into the soil.
3. Water
  • Unless it rains, soak with a fine spray and keep the soil moist for the next few weeks.
  • The grass can be trimmed when it is 5-8cm (2-3in).
  • Each time you mow, lower blade height a level until its at 2.5cm (1in).
  • Do not cut more than a ⅓ off the growth at any one point.

How to overseed an existing lawn

  • Prepare the lawn by mowing it short, raking out dead grass, moss and debris.
  • Apply a lawn dressing, such as Miracle-Gro EverGreen Lawn Dressing.
  • In dry conditions, moisten the lawn.
  • Sprinkle a small handful of seed for each square meter (20g).
  • Lightly rake the seed into the lawn.

Where to use

How often to apply

Apply as required.

Use plant protection products safely. Always read the label and product information before use.

Q1: Do I need to add any fertiliser to the grass seed?

A1: Quite often there is enough residual fertility in the soil to help the young grass plants grow. Do not use strong fertilisers weed and moss killers for 24 weeks after sowing seed as young grass plants are tender and might be harmed.

Q2: Can I use my lawn spreader to sow the seed?

A2: Use our easy-to-use spreader settings table to set Scotts® and EverGreen® spreaders correctly when using our products.

Q3: When can I expect to see the shoots coming up?

A3: In ideal conditions germination starts in 4 days with a small root appearing soon followed by the grass blade. If the soil is cooler germination will take longer, maybe up to 28 days.

Q4: I have some grass seed I bought 4 years ago, can I still use it?

A4: Grass seed has a limited shelf life and where possible we recommend the use and purchase of new season’s stock. Our seed has a very high viability when packed and providing it has been stored in cool dry conditions it will last for 2 years after which germination will decline.

Q5: When is the best time to sow grass seed?

A5: Grass seeds need a high enough soil temperature in order to germinate, so wait until all frosts have passed and we are starting to see much warmer night temperatures. Usually between March and September. Avoid sowing grass in very hot and dry conditions; equally avoid cold conditions to get the best results.

Q6: Why is it called ‘Fast Grass’?

A6: Due to the special seed blend, germination is quick and can be expected in just 4 days under ideal conditions. The special coating holds nutrients that stimulate the seed to develop and grow.

Q7: What is the coverage?

A7: The coverage per each pack size is as follows: 450g carton = 15m², 2.4kg carton = 80m²,6kg bag = 200m².
