We are a bit colder already than NC, and our ability to soak the ground is diminished, even 3 times a week,,, so getting germination within a reasonable time frame before the ground dries out again is what I'm shooting for...
Riggle, if you are talking about hydroseeding and aerating the slurry with a particular temperature control, you could go all the way and have it germinated when you apply it to the ground... I wonder if there is a cheap machine that would spray the slurry evenly???
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage,,, I wonder what does...
