What is the proper soil temp to overseed and fetilize in spring?
it would depend on the type of seed you are planting.. for fescue you will see germination at 50 degrees if all other conditions are favorable..
I agree with the 50 degree statement. HOWEVER, if you are seeding this spring I would not wait for perfect soil temps. Go ahead and get the seed in the groud and get it mulched. That way when the temp is right the seed will already be where it needs to be. The amount of time before germination will not be so long that the seed will rot in the ground.
Just my thoughts on the matter.
Wondering, as a rule, is June too late to seed in the northeast? What are the factors to consider?
