First of all I did not get my original order, they sent 2 packets of tomato plant seeds instead of 2 half pounds of Buffalo grass seed. When I got what I ordered I did a meticulous job preparing the ground and planting - that was 15 days ago. With great care and attention I thought I would at least see some results... nothing so far, just a plot of great top soil. I'll continue to care for the planting area and if i see results I'll change my one star rating.
