Answer: 
For small patches, I don't find it necessary to use fertilizer. If I were using this for larger areas, I'd recommend a starter fertilizer.
Just keep area watered until the grass can get established. Remember, this contains perennial rye, fescue and blue grass and each germinates at a different rate: rye=7 days, fescue=14 and blue grass = 21 days.
Good luck!

Answer: 
First, Do Not Use a Weed & Feed product since the weed killer will kill off your new grass seedlings. I reccomend using a starter fertilizer first, followed by a regular grass fertilizer during the hot summer. If you thicken your lawn it will choke out weeds, and you can use a spot treatment weed killer.

Answer: 
Hello,
A quality fertilizer specifically designed for that purpose is recommended. A lawn and garden specialist should be able to help you find a good lawn starter fertilizer. Be sure to avoid any weed & feed fertilizer. Herbicides can damage new seedlings.
Thank you

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in Pennington Seed Ryegrass. In Jacksonville, lawns should be over-seeded with Ryegrass during October and November. It is best to wait until daytime temperatures are consistently in the low to mid 70 degree range. If you have any further questions about our products please visit our website or call 800-285-SEED (7333). Thank you,

While the grass seed sprouted well, I now have a new weed (finally identified by the Rutgers Extension Service as bittercress) growing everywhere I seeded. Areas of my yard that were not seeded do not have this weed. Where I increased the seed output, the weed is even more prevalent. When I contacted company representatives, they actually had the audacity to suggest purchasing their products to eradicate it!! The weed seed is in the Sun & Shade mix AND the Dense Shade mix. Buyer beware!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! To preface: I used Pennington's Northwest Seed. To say this is the best grass I have ever seen or used, is a gross understatement! I have a small backyard (about 460 sq ft of lawn area) and the existing grass was a mishmash of different seed types and full of large brown spots and weeds and clover, etc. I put in the time and a LOT of effort to roto-till the old sod and till the ground to a depth of several inches. I then spent a couple of weeks, raking the old sod and roots out and separating the soil from them. I stock piled the soil in an area of the yard, leveled the grade by hand and began seeding. I spread the seed by hand, to ensure compete coverage and then spread the stockpiled soil over the top. After that, I went over it all again with another 3 # bag and began watering. The lawn was seeded on a Friday afternoon and on Wednesday, the seed had sprouted and is thriving. I am writing this review TWO WEEKS to the day the grass seed was planted! Check out the attached photos. I will NEVER EVER buy any grass seed that isn't Pennington!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from grows where others don't In the past I'd used a variety of grass seed suppliers. I even had my yard aqua-seeded once. Basically all those trials were either of limited success or failures. However, after trying Pennington Sun and Shade I've used nothing else and I never wonder if the seed will germinate. Total success and totally pleased with the results. Now, if I can't find Pennington's, I don't buy anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY DEPENDABLE I've been using Pennington Sun and Shade mix for years and never had a problem. Easy to work with: you don't have to be exact with any specifications, the seed is very forgiving. Simple instructions: warm and sunny conditions, use good soil, use a starter fertilizer to help, keep the seed moist until it germinates, and it will start sprouting in 6 to 10 days, and fill-out in a lush, hardy lawn that will last years. Excellent product - I'll never use that other brand again - Pennington is a WINNER!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent germination and cover Used this seed in an area behind the garage which gets full sun for about five hours and is in shade the rest of the day. Prepared the ground with reasonable care without going overboard. After sowing the seed, rolled it in, kept it moist and 10 days later had great coverage. have already been asked by two neighbours which seed brand I used
