  • ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Any purchase smaller than 50 lbs will be repackaged into resealable bags. As leaders in turfgrass research, breeding and production, Jacklin Seed offers the expertise and innovation that golf courses and sod farms value. For more info from the manufacturer, visit: http://www.simplot.com/turf_horticulture/jacklin_seed
  • WHAT TO EXPECT: Germination of the grass seed mixture will start between 10-14 days and continue through 21 days. Grass seed will continue to thicken throughout growing season.
  • WHEN TO APPLY: Spring and fall (60F and 80F) are the best times to seed, but can be used anytime during the growing season applicable to your region. Grass seed germinates when soil temperatures are consistently above 50F. This roughly corresponds to daytime air temperatures between 60F to 75F. If grass seed is applied in fall, any ungerminated grass seeds will remain dormant throughout winter, then germinate when soil temperatures reach 50F in spring.
  • APPLICATION RATE: 5 lbs per 1,000 sq. ft. (ex. if you have 10,000 sq ft to seed, purchase a 50 lb bag) When seeding new lawn and/or overseeding existing lawn, use with starter fertilizer. (We suggest: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B085ZKTCD9?ref=myi_title_dp)
