Description

Our premium shade grass seed is a special mix of grass that creates deeper roots so it can thrive in shade. Either under trees or next to a fence, your lawn will thrive. Create the stripes you dreamed of in an area you thought was impossible.

When and where to sow Premium Shade Grass Seed

Seed can be sown from March to September

The best time to sow new grass seed is in Autumn or in Spring. That’s because you can usually expect rain to help create the first shoots and the weather is fair and the soil is at the right temperature.

For best results, you should sow grass seed when the weather is fair – not to hot and not too cold. Don’t sow if frost is forecast. The soil must be above 8 degrees Celsius for the seed to germinate.

The perennial rye grass will also give successful results in areas of shade. However, if you’re looking for a finer lawn and yours is in the shade, then choose our premium grass seed specially for shade
