    I know this is elementary to most of you, and I think I know the answer.

    I just overseeded with KB, and Perenial rye. Theres a threat of frost soon. Does grass seed die with a frost? Or will I be OK?

    Frost will help cause it will kill off any crabgrass you might have

    Thats what I thought but I had that little doubt, that the frost may kill the seedlings.

    Thanks guys!
