Let’s see those seed tags!

Post by 01Bullitt »

I helped a friend yesterday aerate & seed his yard. Long story short I told him to pick up this fescue blend that was on sale this month for a heck of a price. Scored 50# for $105 & all Mountain View varieties.

It’s better to have 0% weed seed. Here is what I got for ~$110 include tax. Not sure if NC is typically more expensive, but these TTTF blends I got from pre-covid year was like $80+tax and more expensive if it has KBG in it.

@01Bullitt that's a great blend. For someone who isn't trying to maintain a really pristine lawn or a lowish input thing, that bag will be great.

I've been using Hogan for a couple of years. Here's the TTTF/KBG mix I received for this fall overseed and new lawn at my daughter's house.

Chesapeake Valley Seed’s Vitality Double Coverage has been my go-to for a couple of years now. Varieties constantly change, but a pretty good mix this year with 0% weeds and 0% other crop.

Nice blend, I agree on the 0% weeds. The Triple Threat blend I typically recommend around here went from $81 last year to $130 this year. The Top Choice was a local pickup vs a 45 minute drive to get the Triple Threat. His yard is already infested with crabgrass and other weeds. I am going to recommend to him to at least let me spray prodiamine next spring to get a handle on the weeds.

Why wait till spring to spray? I’ve found prodiamine is more effective with a fall app.

First year using 0% weed seed. I got my TTTF blend from Hogan since they are a short drive from my house. Hopefully it turns out good.

That’s where the seed farms are and tags will or should always list where the seeds came from and a lot come from Oregon.

Mainly to control the crabgrass next summer. Also the prodiamine label says to wait 60 days after seeding to apply.

Bought this at a local lawn equipment store. Couldn’t find much info on the KY-41 or the JT-783. Have been using a local seed company, but bought this on a recommendation. Anyone know anything about these two cultivars?
