Is it possible to sow grass seed on snow? The results will be shown about mid-April. Left to right: bluegrass, perennial rye, fine fescue and tall fescue. Temperature was 23 F, and snow depth was about 8 inches. Seed was sown by hand sprinkling. I used three feet by three feet plots, bare soil in a shady area. Previous plots were seeded on November 25. Spring dormant seeding is planned for about the day snow melts--about March 15. The left half of each plot was fertilized with Milorganite (5-2-0) in advance, (at about 41 pounds per thousand sqft.) This test is essentially the same as in the winter of 2017.
