    Has anyone noticed in michigan that overseeds, rennovates, that the seed is taking a long time to gerninate? Im thinking its been a very cold april so its slow to start. My rennovations with topdressing ussally germinate in 3-5 days with the perenial ryes and 10 days on the fescues. But this month the germination is more like 10 days to 2 weeks on the ryes. Still early maybe with the night frosts and all. Any one having same luck althought it be bad luck? Wierd thing is we started a week earlier this year cutting.

    we had some really hard frosts that took its toll on germination....we started the samw week cutting last year....and normally we start April 15th...the last 2 years have been off schedule....kinda sucks for this months billing
