Before I launched my grass seed, I talked to the world’s leading producer about what I wanted, and then I visited their trial grounds. I was amazed to see how badly some top selling types of grass seed performed when judged on their appearance, wear and tear, disease and drought tolerance, and long-term performance. We then put together my idea mix, as the only grass seed you’ll need, whether you’re sowing a new lawn from scratch, patching any gaps, or simply giving an old lawn a new lease of life. This special mix does it all, and I’ve been delighted with the results in my garden.
- Sowing new lawns. This pack contains enough seed to sow 18.5 sq metres. The best time to sow is March/April or towards the end of September.
- Patching gaps. You can buy packs of special products to patch lawns. This is much better value. The best time to patch your lawn is March/May or the autumn.
- Transforming tired lawns. It’s amazing what a sprinkling of fresh grass seed can make to a tired old lawn. It can give any lawn a new lease of life. It’s called over-seeding by the professionals, and they do it regularly. I like to treat mine in the spring or the autumn, and once the seed has germinated, I water on some dilute Lawn Magic. It makes an amazing difference!
