can someone explain the process of grass seed becoming a plant? i was just wondering how if you put down seed during a hot period and don't water it, it won't become a plant. why doesn't it just sit there until the proper conditions and then grow into a plant like dormant seeding? how is hot dry weather different than cold winter weather? i can understand if the seed becomes a plant, but the plant does not mature enough before the cold or dry weather then dies, but why doesn't it just sit there and then grow during hot dry weather. thanks.
