Can anyone tell me the germination characteristics of Tall Fescue? None of my books tell me and my search yesterday failed to find the info. What I am looking for is the idea soil temp for Tall Fescue germination, the germination period (time from seeding to germination, first shoots). In a natural growth cycle, when does Tall Fescue usually form seed heads? How long for seeds to become viable? When would Tall Fescue seeds normally start germinmating on their own (Fall? It is a cool season perrenial)? Etc. Thanks for the help.
