    just curious? and how are the results? Techniques used? month done in?
    I done a couple last winter with mixed results. I had a call today for a dormant seeding and that got me think about the lawn site pros.

    Not good. I'm not sure of the exact survival rate but it is low. Alot of the seed will rot due to constant freezing and thawing. Given the right conditions on some years you may have some germination but I would personally not advise it.

    I totally agree with captaingreen. You would probably have better results if you wait.
