Hi it states 35gm2 when sowing a new lawn, other ryegrass varieties on your site recommended a higher sowing rate is it worth putting slightly more down of this A5 variety or should I just stick to the rate specified, thanks
Question by: Gary Hillsdon on 6 Aug 2021, 16:31
Thank you for your question. This mixture can be sown up to 50g/m2, which will speed up the establishment time.
