You may recall I planted some crabgrass seed I collected from my daughter's lawn 2 years ago.
I planted it in containers of potting soil inside during the winter. We keep our house very cool; it is 68.3 at the moment.
After 6 weeks at 68 degrees, no crabrass germinated. When I moved the containers outside at 85 degrees germination was fine.

Maybe I can try it again this week.

Soil temp here is 35 under turf.
