SOWING ADVICE

  • Checking fertility status - especially the pH (soil pH needs to be 6-6.5 for grass)
  • Check for, and correct any soil compaction
  • Sow into a fine, firm seedbed with adequate moisture levels
  • Seed bed fertiliser can be beneficial - low Nitrogen, apply good rates of potash and phosphate (depending on soil fertility) to aid establishment

WHEN TO SOW
Grass seed can be sown at anytime from April to September, ideally when the soil is moist or when rain is forecast and the weather is frost free. If possible keep the horses off as long as possible to enable establishment.
