im in renovation season. My process has generally been to aerate, topdress with about 1/4” (sometimes a bit more)of compost, then slice seed. This season has been very wet. The ground is holding a lot of moisture.....and the compost especially has been real wet. So the other day this combination was actually plugging up my slice seeder real bad. The job took much longer than it should’ve....and I’m nervous the results might be less than desirable. Not to mention flipping the seeder up and unplugging it by hand 20 times got to be real annoying. So my question.....does anyone routinely put top dressing on top of seed? If so.....how deep do you run the seeder before the seed is actually too deep?
