I need a little advice folks, I just seeded a large part of my yard last week and immediately following I got a huge downpour and apparently a lot of the seed got washed away. My germination is spotty at best. I have the following questions. 1. Can I slit seed and re fertilize over the areas I have done already. 2. After I do this (if I can) is it possible to topdress with composted soil? 3. what is the best method for topdressing? 4. I bought an aerator attachment for my Stilhl M55 which apparently works great as a slit seeder but not so well as an aerator so would I broadcast the seed first and then use the attachment? or vice versa? Thanks all, Roger w.
