Seed easy to spread but while it sprouted somewhat quickly in some spots other areas have not shown signs of any growth at all. Those areas bare

Rated 2 out of 5Â by PalDC A little growth
After trying Scotts Kentucky Bluegrass Mix and getting little to no growth last year, we decided to try the Pennington Kentucky Bluegrass Blend. The Pennington seed grew only slightly better. I used some light sprinkles of Miracle Grow with the Pennington which may have made the difference. Both the Scotts and the Pennington seed received daily watering. The Pennington seed was placed in a well cleared 6' x 6' area to test it and though it grew a little, the growth wasn't very good even by the 5 week mark - just some very spindly thin blades in a few patches. As for germination time the first small signs of growth appeared at the 14 day mark. The bag says Seedling Emergence in 10 to 21 days so it is indeed slow in comparison to Perennial Rye seed. Unfortunately, the grass that did grow was a rather light green, and not like a Midnight KBG or some of the best KBG seeds. In fairness to the Kentucky Blue Grass seeds, it may be that Washington, DC, in the transition zone between north and south here on the east coast, isn't a good region for KBG. A garden center here said KBG is hard to grow here. These are the kinds of Kentucky Bluegrass seed that came in the Pennington KBG bag I received:
48.80% Ridgeline Kentucky Bluegrass
24,30% Wild Horse Kentucky Bluegrass
14.50% Oasis Kentucky Bluegrass
9.60% Mallard Kentucky Bluegrass
2.60% Inert Matter
You can read more about lots of grass types and seeds at NTEP, which stands for National Turfgrass Evaluation Program. I think these Pennington seeds must be rather new without much data tabulated yet by sources outside of Pennington.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by IndyNE Bluegrass is the best for Great Lakes Region for drought and weather
I have started to bounce between Scotts and Pennington. It has been a tough summer in the Midwest\Great Lakes with cold temps and lots of rain (abnormal). Some areas are growing great while others are not but without a horticulture degree I did my best. This seems to grow well if you follow the instructions carefully and expect a longer than normal germination period this year.
