I have a couple of properties that I need to do some patch seeding on. The weather has been so damn unpredictable this year there is no rhyme nor reason to the temp swings. I have avoided putting seed down for the fear of freezing overnight temps killing the seeds which ticks the cust off because grass isn't growing and ticks me off because I have to go back to seed again. My question is am I being overly cautious? I read here on LS that once a seed starts germinating (putting roots down) that they cannot be killed from 32 and below temps? Is that right? Just how long (on average) does it take for grass seed to germinate in the first place? And one last question. What would be the best way to prepare the ground to accept and grow the seed? Any help will be appreciated.
