Shake

  • Shake box to re-mix seed

How to overseed an exisiting lawn

WHERE TO USE

For use on lawns requiring rapid germination.

 

HOW OFTEN TO APPLY

Apply as required.

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

1. Do I need to add any fertiliser to the grass seed?

Quite often there is enough residual fertility in the soil to help the young grass plants grow. A general feed such as Miracle-Gro® Growmore at 35gm/sqm raked into the soil and watered in a few days before sowing the seed. 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.

 

2. Can I use my Scotts Evengreen Drop Spreader to sow the seed?

Yes, use setting 18 and go over the lawn 3 times at different angles. 

 

3. When can I expect to see the shoots coming up?

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.

 

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

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.

 

5. When is the best time to sow grass seed?

March when the soil has warmed up to May and September to early October. Sowing later into the autumn may not give the young plants sufficient time to establish before winter sets in.  It is possible to sow seed in the summer but grass seed does not like very hot weather plus you must keep the soil moist at all times to encourage good growth so no holidays.
