A break from the wet weather!

We had all hoped for a dry start to 2013, yet a lot more precipitation fell in January, adding woes to already stressed turf.  If you are considering overseeding or replacing turf, grab yourself a bag of our Coldstart mix.
March sees a dramatic increase in sunlight intensity, and average temperatures rise above 10oC for the first time in 4 months.  However rainfall is on average slightly more than February, but less than January.  This means that although we enjoy a brief respite, we can expect more wet weather over the next few weeks. 

Turf that has been subject to continuously waterlogged ground, combined with a lack of sunlight has taken its toll – grass becomes stressed and diseased with fusarium.  Fine grasses struggle to make headway under these conditions, and even perennial ryegrass suffers, with slow growth at the lower temperatures.  Time to consider overseeding turf!

Coldstart contains Carnac and Colosseum dwarf perennial ryegrasses.  Carnac is a great quality grass that gives a luxurious quality, and Colosseum is unique in its ability to both germinate and grow at low temperatures.

Sunshine!  At the start of a new week!  Let's hope that it's also the start of spring - dare we hope for dry and bright weather?  Don't forget to check us out for all your seed requirements!

More wet weather - perhaps we should add pond plants & sea weed to our range! (these could be for sea cows rather than cattle!).  

It might be snow, rain, dry (not a chance at the moment!) or hot (hmm...), we have the right grass seed for you!  Try us out...
