Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Casperguy123 Nothing but weeds
Tilled my soil, spread it out, covered it, and watered to keep it moist. Waited for over a month for something to sprout up. When it did, it was nothing but weeds! My backyard may look green, but it is not bluegrass!

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 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by oceanspruce Will NOT Germinate
Scott's Kentucky Blue Grass seed blend simply WILL NOT germinate despite ideal conditions on rototilled premium composted loam and careful waterings three times daily over three weeks. Other Scott's grass seed mixes, namely the fescue blend and the perennial rye glass blend, do germinate and grow into nice lawn, but the Scott's Kentucky Blue Grass Blend is a completely defective product. Don't waste your money and time trying to get it to grow.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bob3026 Won't germinate
this seed looks exactly the same when I planted it in April.
Followed all directions and still just seed.
I will buy another brand in fall to fix what you product failed to do.
