Wet Spring Making Reseeded Yards Germinate Slower...

This wet Spring in Northern IL is making reseeding yards germinate slower than normal....we haven't had much sun at all this month or last month. A lot of rainy days and a ton of clouds. Temps in 55 to 74 degrees with no sun. The Bluegrass usually takes a little more than 3 weeks to germinate....and it seems a lot longer this year because the lack of sun.

The weather is going to get better next week.....a lot of sun....and not as much rain!!!

I'm thinking of spreading some Milorganite fertilizer to help speed up the germination rate.

Anyone else having slower germination times this Spring????
