    What is the opinion,quality, on Bleugrass seed from Lesco. I have a lesco dealer about 15 minutes from my home. The dealer is to send me some recommendations for seed based on what criteria I submitted.The first recommendation for seed was #083205, Lesco to send more information later.

    The recommendation on a starter fertilizer was #016420(18-24-12)

    I purchased the starter fertilizer from Lesco,18-24-12 25% PPSCU.

    Also while I was there I was given a sample of their grass to try, I planted it in a pot identical to the other test samples.

    19.80% Blue Sapphire Bluegrass
    19.66% lakeshore Kentucky Bluegrass

    I sprayed the yard with Roundup. What is the idea behind waiting 7 days before starting preparation for new seed?
