Planting Rate: 10 lbs per acre
Planting Date: March to May, but can be planted Jan-Feb and will sit and wait until warmer temperatures to germinate. Can be planted through the summer in areas with cooler temps and adequate moisture.
Planting Methods: This is a very light and “fluffy” mix, and will not flow easily through a conventional seed drill or broadcast seeder. Mixing with sand or fertilizer will help the seed flow through the spreader, or spread by hand. Best results are obtained by spreading the seed over a well-prepared seed bed, then rolling or pressing the seed into the top 1/4 inch of soil.
Care: Mowing—Allow the seedheads to turn brown and dry before mowing, in order to obtain the maximum reseeding potential. Grazing—Allow the grass to grow un-grazed for at least one year. Monitor grazing closely to ensure that the grass is not overgrazed and allowed to regrow.
