Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lenrapp Won't Germinate....
This is the second year in a row that I have tried Scott's Kentucky Blue Grass seed and it has once again failed to germinate properly.
I power raked my Kentucky Blue Grass thick lawn, removed the thatch. Spread the seed as directed, lightly covered it with top soil. Watered every day and it rained for days an the we had cool weather.
Over two weeks now since the first seeking, had to try a second one...and only a sparse amount of seed has started to grow. I am trying a third attempt today and will see if that works.

This seed has filled in problem areas of my lawn nicely, but follow the instructions for prep work and watering recommendations for maximum results.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by blaszcz6 Nothing germinated.....NOTHING!
I'm faily new to this stuff but usually pretty good at figuring out this stuff after reading directions and watching a few videos. I bought this at home depot thinking i could help my grass get a bit thicker and fix some dry patches. I used a spreader and went through my lawn once over. I'm surprised that there was absolutely no change in the way the lawn looked. I've seeded new lawns before so i didn't think this would be any different.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ginger3 Did not grow!
Initial spot planting in bare lawn spots with no growth in 3 weeks. Overplanted areas again and no growth in 2 weeks. I followed the instructions exactly and watered almost everyday. False advertisement for sure.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by InSouthCentralPA Didn't germinate after 45 days
There are a lot of factors that affect seed germination. That said, I would expect at least something to happen. We had an unseasonably warm start to the spring in south central PA and a ton of rain. About 45 days ago I put down bluegrass seed followed by scotts starter food for new lawns. In bare spots, I also put down scotts top soil before seeding. I watered every day for the first week then let nature take over. In the bare spots where I put top soil down, nothing happened. Looking closer in other areas, the grass seed is still there, not germinated, not growing. My lawn is mostly rye and feacue. Maybe I'll stick with that for the next attempt.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mongo Must babysit this seed
If you don't do it right, it won't work. Used tenacity - two applications two weeks apart to kill weeds. Waited two weeks after last application. Mowed lawn as short as possible bagging clippings. Power raked entire lawn then bagged remains. Over seeded with Scott's Kentucky blue grass. Watered lawn twice per day, for 2.5 weeks, then once per day for another 1.5 weeks. (About 15 minutes per area, commensurate with rainfall). Germination rate was highest where there was at least some leftover grass, bare areas germinated least. What the germination rate is, I can't say, I would bet 50-80 percent, but that is a guess. Bluegrass is one of the slowest germinating grasses, requiring constant watering for 3-4 weeks, if you don't want to drag hoses around twice a day, don't buy this seed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lene31 Highly recommended and did not germinate
I bought Turf Builder Kentucky Bluegrass Seed Mix and did exactly what the directions said to do. It has been over three weeks now
and still nothing. It will not germinate so have decided that I will have to start over again. I bought this seed having come highly recommended from friends that have used it and am now very disappointed
Sorry to say I will not use this product again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by b00strz Beginner gardener great results
Planted half of their smallest bag first with an orbital spreader. Two weeks later I overseeded the edges by hand and spread the rest on the orbital. 5 weeks later, I can say that I achieved about 95% germination and excellent growth. I just bought another small bag that I will mix with top soil to overseed some areas that need patching (very small areas). I've never grown grass in my life and people told me to go with sod, but this was a very affordable solution.
