Grass seed
« on: July 24, 2012, 08:24:08 pm »
We paid a fortune for grass seed last year and the grass is now flowering.


There are some patches that need reseeding and - rather than buy more seed - can't I just pull the seeds off the grass that's already there??


If yes - then how do I know when they are ready??

Once they are crispy dry and start to shed naturally.   I have some beautiful briza with tiny seed heads which I'm going to start off in modules for next year.  I daren't just sprinkle it as there is lots of 'weed' grass germinating so I wouldn't know which is which.

Thanks FW.


I can pull the seeds off but they are still quite moist. I shall keep checking them.
