  • Product Description
  • Reviews


This special Seed mix has good shade and drought tolerance but still produces a top quality lawn.

  • Gardens often have those shady areas around trees and next to buildings where it is difficult to get grass to establish. It is in these areas that this seed mix will provide the best results. It is also ideal for over seeding.
  • Sow between March and October. Young grass will normally take 14-21 days to germinate.
  • For new lawns sow at a rate of 35g per sq metre or 1.5 oz per sq yard
  • For Overseeding use a rate of 25g per sq. metre or ¾ oz per sq. yard

When first mowing new grass start at a height of 5-8cm about 2-3 inches then gradually lower the height of cut to about 25mm or 1inch. It is important not to remove more than one third of the length of the grass blade in any one cut. Let the grass grow longer to 35mm or 1.5 inches for heavily shaded areas so that the grass has less stress

Sow between March and October. Young
grass will appear within 14-21 days
under good growing conditions.
New Lawn:
  35g per sq. metre (1¼ oz per sq. yard)
  25g per sq. metre (¾ oz per sq. yard).
New Lawn:
  When grass is 5-8cm (2-3in) high, cut
for the first time. Trim lightly and
gradually lower blades to an ideal
cutting height of 13mm (½in).
Subsequent Cuts:
  Mow regularly but try not to remove more than a third of the growth at any one time.
