    can you buy dandelion or crabgrass, or other pesty weed seeds? i asked at my dealer, he asked why i would even want them, then he laughed and said, "that is not the christian thing to do." where can i get them?

    Cmon Bobby......Those 2 are too easy to control. I expected more from you.


    Try looking for Ground Ivy, Violets, or Wild Strawberry seeds, mixed with a little Creeping Bentgrass seed for good measure.. :dizzy:

    Yup, ground ivy and violets are very hard if not almost impossible to control

    my logic ken is simple: i know that dandelion seeds will germinate now. the pre em her guy puts down in the spring will be useless on them. i wish i could get some creeping charlie or something a bit more brutal, but i'll enjoy driving by in may looking at her yellow top lawn

    2 bucks a packet for a 100 seeds. Not sure if you can afford that though. ;)
    That's for the dandelion seeds.
    You can of course get crabgrass seeds too.
