The grass is always greener . . .

The fescue seed I planted on Feb. 25 is up and has about 2 inches of growth. Even though I double-sowed the seeds, the patches continue to look a little thin to me, but I'm not complaining. This is the best germination I've had of any grass seed I've planted. The plentiful rain in March obviously had much to do with it.

You can see for yourself. The photo below was taken before I planted the seed in a shady spot on the west side of the house. Photo at top right was taken today.

I'll be fertilizing it soon. Will it last through the humid summer? Only the fescue gods know.

  1. Very interesting. I'm curious about the type of fertilizer you'll use. Will it be natural and if so, what kind?
