Thoughts on temps affecting Fescue germination? I usually shoot for about Sept. 15, around the same time I am doing warm season grasses winter Pre-em......Wouldn't mind going a bit earlier on the Fescue, like NOW so I am not doing everything at once, but with mid and upper 80 temps it just doesn't seem right. What effects does these warm temps have on germination?

It will germinate. It's just harder for it to establish due to the hotter and sometimes drier weather. I start after September 1st here in the NC foothills, dependent on actual weather. Down in GA you might be pushing the window on early, but then again, by the time is starts coming up it will be mid-month anyways.

Take a gamble at your own judgement...
