Depends how thick and green you want it. I used a fertilizer spreader between 3 & 4 setting to get the effect I wanted.

Will this annual seed come up again next year, or do I have to start over again?

You will have to reseed this annual ryegrass every year. If you were looking to have it come back each year, you need Pennington Perennial Grass Seed. This seed pictured has fertilizer included.

Is there a shelf life for this seed. Can I buy a 50# bag and use it to plant for more than one year?

The color of grass is different year to year. I save my extra seed every year and some years I have bought way to much. Some of the rye grass is darker green and some is lighter.

Does it grow in winter?

Asked by Rick November 17, 2018

Answers

Hi Rick, Annual Ryegrass is a cool season grass, which means it will grow when the temperatures during the day are between 60 to 75 degrees and no lower than 50 degrees. While there is some room for the temperatures to fluctuate, winter temperatures will not be warm enough to provide sufficient germination. Thanks!

can i use this seed in NJ?

Asked by Aamir April 26, 2018

Answers

Hi Aamir, I found this info from: http://ryegrasses.com/info/whentoplant.html#.WutSFKQvwdU "Cool season grasses such as Annual and Perennial Ryegrass, grow best when the soil temperatures are between 50 and 65 degrees F. These temperatures usually occur when the daytime air temperatures are between 60 and 75 degrees. High temperatures of summer can cause these plants to go dormant and thus planting during summer is asking for problems. Start planting your cool season grass seeds when the fall temperatures reach 75° and are dropping as fall / winter approaches. Fall is the best / least risk planting time for cool season grasses. Alternately the second choice is to plant in spring when spring temperatures have reached 60° and are rising in the spring -- again this is not the BEST time to plant cool season grass" I hope this helps. The climate is a bit different where i live from NJ, so i wont have much first hand knowledge. But i have been able to to grow in warm climate between 70 and 80.

At what time do you seed in Md.???

Asked by Herbie March 5, 2019

Answers

Hi Herbie, Annual Ryegrass is a cool season grass, which is planted in the spring or fall. However, it will die out in summer temperatures so it’s best planted in the fall. Thanks!

Excellent choice for Winter grass. Within 2 weeks, I had a new lawn. Remember to add a layer of compost to protect your seeds from birds. Watered 2X per day. 4 minutes in the morning, and 8 minutes in the evening.

My brother did the job without any experience. It looks awesome now. We didn’t water our front lawn for 5 years. After seeding it, it’s so green in 4 weeks. It’s easy!

Nearly full germination in 7 days. I pushed to get it planted before the rain even though it was going to be mid to high 70's. The only place it hasn't fully germinated yet is along the street and driveway where it's still hot during the day. I held the last pound of seed back to touch-up any problem areas so I have full and even coverage. I put 20-pounds on 4,000 SF of bermuda.
